In a rare public protest...PM Vladimir Putin was loudly booed by some in a crowd of 20,000...during a televised Moscow martial arts contest.
As Putin stepped into the ring at the end of a match between a Russian and American...the audience whistled, hissed and booed.
Putin appeared at first shocked by the negative reception...but recovered.
His popularity has been declining recently...though still high by Western standards.
Putin's supporters claim the audience was jeering the American fighter Jeff Monson...aka the 'Snowman'.
A 1:09 YOUTUBE video of Putin's reception...has been viewed over 846,000 times.
