Russian President Medvedev Fires Moscow Mayor


Russia´s president Dmitry Medvedev has reportedly fired Moscow´s mayor Yuri Luzhkov.

The 74-year-old had served as mayor for 18 years. Nevertheless, he had to leave because he "had lost the trust of the president of the Russian Federation", a presidential decree confirmed.

The mayor openly criticized the Kremlin and complained of being dropped by the party.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
  There should be term limits...  
on every elected government position. There is too much opportunity and incentive for corruption. The longer a politician stays in office the deeper the corruption becomes entrenched. It´s as true in Russia as it is in the USA or China.
