'History will remember Bradley Manning very differently'

In today's round up of the international press, we look at whether Russia is really on the cusp of a revolution, or if Putin is merely consolidating his power. We also talk about why we shouldn't forget Bradley Manning, and there is some bad news for Santa.

The Moscow Times reports the new Russian parliament had its most quarrelsome meeting in years yesterday - but they fear Vladimir Putin may be encouraging the opposition as a clever tactic to legitimise his own rule at the ballot box.

The Daily Beast looks at Bradley Manning's pre-trial hearing, which wound up yesterday - while the Guardian says he may be being treated as a criminal, but he's actually played a key role in this year's events.

The Daily Mail, meanwhile, has bad news for Santa - reindeer in Canada are dying out.
