There were communists, liberals and nationalists... I voted for communists, but i will not participate in demonstrations together with the liberals and nationalists.The thing is, though, these protesters are mainly supporters of the Communist Party as far as I know, so they are less pro-Western than Putin. So all in all, I don't think this is such a bad idea. The consequences may actually be good, if the ruling party is weakened. It's not as if Putin has ever really been strong on the West, anyway.
