MOSCOW - Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov said Monday he would run for president against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin next March, weeks after falling out with the Kremlin over his abortive leadership of a small pro-business party.

Putin is expected to win the March 4 election despite growing signs of discontent with his rule after a parliamentary election that the opposition said was rigged and brought tens of thousands of people out on to the streets in protest.
