Moscow mayor is a close friend of this former police chief. And also I'm unsure he had any law rights to dismiss him.

Old man Yury Luzhkov is a corrupt fool. LOL Yeltsin chose Putin and not idiots like Yury Luzhkov or Yevgeny Primakov. Remember those good old Yeltsin days? ;)

I totally support this decision, because of many bureaucrats-bandits are into government.Bureaucrats should pay for own errors and corruption.

Pronin is a scape got. He got sacrificed to please the public. How do you think a new chief is going to be any better?

Corrupt? Probably yes. Fool? Hmmm...
Anyway, it would be good next step for Medvedev and his approval ratings - to dismiss Luzhkov. Luzhkov is responsible for what is going on in Moscow, he supported Gen. Pronin, who made the country's largest criminal organization from Moscow police.

Not worse - I'm sure. What can be worse than corrupted criminal, leader of mass-murderer's organization and Nazi supporter?

And what did he do, the next one will not do? Without drastic 'cleaning' campaign situation will not change. Saking one person will not change much at all.

It would seem to me that a better line of authority and accountability should be in place at the local level to deal with such things..more de-centralized power. For the President of the Russian Federation to have to take time away from national affairs to handle a local problem is questionable..But, the decision seems to be good..Many abuses of the cities police forces are quite common..corruption and abuse of power, and protection by higher authority to cover up or protect those officers is their normal way of doing business..Leadership, responsibility, and example starts at the top...a complete house cleaning is in order of all cities police departments in russia..

Its a good publicity for Medvedev. Of course Minister of internal affairs could do that instead just as well.

And what is he owns? I never heard that he owns something serious. Only some little newspapers, probably. Russian Media is TV first of all.
