    Default Russian President Vladimir Putin Has Dissolved the Government



    Russian news agencies cite the Kremlin as saying that President Vladimir Putin dissolved the government Wednesday.

    Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov asked the Kremlin to dissolve his government, Russian news agencies reported, with less than three months remaining before parliamentary elections.

    Fradkov made the decision based on "the approaching major political events in the country and a desire to give the president full freedom in making decisions, including personnel," Fradkov was quoted by ITAR-Tass as saying. A Kremlin spokesman could not immediately comment on the report.

    I just saw it at ABCNews. But you're right, AT, it isn't everywhere at the moment. The earthquake seems to be the Breaking News.

    So, does this mean Russia is under military rule or that Putin is a dictator?

    No, but it is a power play by Putin. He'll be able to make appointments and make unobstructed decisions.

    Sounds like he has taken a page from a certain other "leader".
