IN THE PAPERS

An overview of the stories making the French and international newspaper headlines. From Monday to Friday live at 7.20 am and 9.20 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2012-03-05

'Putin has moved from being an elected leader - to president for life'

The focus is on Russia for today's international press - was there election fraud, where can the opposition go from here, and is Putin backing himself into a corner?

The Moscow Times looks at reports at election fraud - and if they're all true, United Russia certainly has some ingenious methods.

The Guardian says we shouldn't get too excited about the growing opposition - there's every likelihood Putin will be re-elected in another six years.

Meanwhile, Haaretz thinks Israel may be outstaying its welcome with Obama - while Foreign Policy says it's all for show and no-one is really going to bomb Iran.
