Russian police have broken up protests across the country against a planned increase in the retirement age.
More than 800 protesters were detained and some beaten with batons, the rights monitoring group OVD-info says.
The rallies were called by the jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who has capitalised on widespread anger against the reforms.
Concessions by President Putin, whose popularity has suffered as a result, have failed to stem the discontent.
The protests coincide with elections for 26 heads of Russia's 85 regions, including in Moscow, which are being held on Sunday.
