What's Wrong with this Picture?

It's from the front page of the Moscow Times yesterday, unfortunatley no story ran with it, only the caption: "More than 700 demonstrators gathering Tuesday on Lubyanskaya Ploshchad, calling for authorities to defend the rights of victims of political repression."

Give up? OK, I'll give you a hint.

Do you notice how everone in the photograph seems to be about a hundred million years old? Where are all the young people? And how come in Russia, nation of 140 million people with a KGB president only a few years removed from a totalitarian nightmare, only 700 people show up for an event like this?
