Vladimir Putin was sold on Friday to the owner of a tabloid that is deferential to the Russian leader Businessman Grigory Berezkin’s ESN group said in a statement it has acquired a 65 percent stake in the RBC media holding plus debt from Onexim Group which is controlled by metals magnate Mikhail Prokhorov The completion of the deal marks the end of a seven-year period when RBC under the ownership of Prokhorov published hard-hitting investigations including into the business affairs of Putin’s inner circle It stood out from most of the mainstream media in Russia which are either controlled by the state or state-run companies or tend to steer clear of topics which could anger powerful officials File image of Vladimir Putin AP In 2016 according to several people familiar with the Kremlin’s thinking some figures close to Putin grew angry with RBC’s coverage Around the same time Russian law enforcement officers in ski masks raided the offices of Onexim Soon after the media group’s editor-in-chief left the country and new senior managers were brought in from a state-run news agency A large proportion of the group’s journalists resigned saying they anticipated restrictions on the topics on which they could report "Apparently the asset became toxic and they (the owners) wanted to get rid of it" Elizaveta Osetinskaya the former editor-in-chief told Reuters on Friday The Kremlin has always denied having pressured RBC over its reporting or being involved in Prokhorov’s decision to sell The deal has been under negotiation for weeks Financial details have not been disclosed Berezkin the new owner already owns the Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid newspaper Its pages are usually dominated by crime stories and celebrity gossip Critical reporting on the president or his senior allies is rare in the newspaper A spokeswoman for ESN group declined to comment on whether the new owner would change RBC’s senior staff or editorial policy Osetinskaya the former editor said that after her departure last year RBC had continued to report independently She said when it gave prominent coverage to anti-Kremlin protests in March she thought that might lead to problems for the group

the side in Steve’s absence" said Finch who has captained the national Twenty20 side on six previous occasions “It’s been a rollercoaster from being captain leading up to the ICC World Twenty20 (in 2016) being injured and then Steve taking over the reins for that tournament but it’s something that any time you get the chance to captain your country in any format you’re very chuffed about" Finch captained the Melbourne Renegades in Australia’s domestic Twenty20 Big Bash competition and believes selectors will be spoilt for depth in the absence of some of Australia’s leading playmakers “There

couple based in Mumbai was planning to adopt a child after 10 years of their marriage They were told by a friend to get in touch with a woman working at a children’s home in Nanded for adoption When the couple went to the children’s home they were told to pay Rs 19 lakh and given a ten-day-old boy Over a year after that in December 2015 it came to light that the child had been ‘purchased’ by the couple without completion of legal adoption formalities The Tardeo police filed an offence in the case and the child was sent to an orphanage pending investigation The couple approached the Bombay

its rascally ally in the region India On May 21 an American drone killed the Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour after he had crossed into Pakistan’s Balochistan province from Iran Washington said he was killed because he blocked peace in Afghanistan and got American soldiers killed Pakistan didn’t know how to respond The foreign office took long till it was rebuked by a PPP leader Sherry Rehman running a think tank — Jinnah Institute — in Islamabad Finally it pleaded breach of sovereignty and called in the US ambassador to register protest Then TV discussants pondered international law but soon came up against the right to pursue that the Americans claimed And no one paid heed to Urdu dares of retaliation against America Awkward facts surfaced to embarrass even those inured against embarrassment over years of proxy aggression Dead Mullah Mansour was Wali Muhammad on the passport he carried and had a flat in Karachi Getting a genuine Pakistani passport and an ID card is no problem A retired general on TV thought it was quite possible that the passport office window in Quetta was manned by an Afghan terrorist masquerading as a local Pakhtun killing the Shia population of the city in off-time Quadrilateral peace talks (Afghanistan US China Pakistan) were put off in 2015 because the world suddenly woke up to the fact that the Taliban chief Mullah Umar holding the talks had actually died two years earlier probably in Karachi Pakistan was always in denial It denied Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan but was offended when the Americans killed him in the garrison city of Abbottabad and carried his body away His successor Aiman al Zawahiri is somewhere around but this somewhere is more likely to be Pakistan rather than less-safe Afghanistan More confusing are the whereabouts of old warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar who has crossed the floor and joined the enemy of Pakistan the Kabul government Many think he will turn out to be biding his time comfortably in Peshawar Journalist Saleem Shahzad was killed in 2011 by no-one-knows-who after he revealed how al Qaeda ruled Pakistan He had written: “At least 100000 Pakistanis were active members of different jihadi cadres Over one million students were enrolled in various Islamic seminaries and there were several hundred thousand supporters of Pakistan’s Islamic religious parties” Al Qaeda presided over this bazaar of killers bred by Pakistan Mullah Mansour’s exit they say leaves the Afghan Taliban in disarray But that is exactly what the Pakhtun warriors like: Disarray in which no top leadership steps in to prevent the local warlord from doing what he wants When Mansour was elevated there was disagreement among the Taliban; and after his “election” this disagreement remained because his subordinates thought nothing of frequent insubordination After Mansour there is Mullah Umar’s son Yaqub who might take over but the real strongman would thus be left out: Sirajuddin Haqqani And that’s where Pakistan gets on the wrong side of the world: The Haqqanis enjoying safe havens deep inside Pakistan are thought to be Pakistan’s best bet against India in the next Indo-Pak proxy war to be fought in Afghanistan There is no doubt that Haqqanis getting on top of the Taliban in Afghanistan would find favour with some quarters in Pakistan unmindful of the way this would expose the country to global wrath By creating chaos in which women and children suffer most the jihad enthusiasts will take Pakistan from permanent instability to permanent conflict As al Qaeda slips in the power-graph of West Asia and more and more youth are attracted to Islamic State Pakistan will have to be the test-tube in which the next jihad is born Strangely Pakistan is not into navel-gazing after the latest
