Russian reporters resign en masse in row over Putin ally report

Leading journalists at Russia’s main business daily, Kommersant, say they have been forced to quit over an article that predicted the resignation of the speaker of the country’s upper house of parliament. Maxim Ivanov and Ivan Safronov said that they were forced to step down because the newspaper’s owner, billionaire Alisher Usmanov, was unhappy with the article. 11 others quit in protest.
