Editors leave Russian media group over Kremlin pressure - source | Reuters

The exodus is a setback for what is widely regarded as one of the few independent media groups in Russia in a landscape otherwise dominated by state media outlets that closely toe the Kremlin's line. An article the newspaper ran on Wednesday reporting that oyster farming was set to start near a palatial property in southern Russia dubbed "Putin's Palace" by the media was the last straw, the same RBC source told Reuters #Business #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #russian #article
