FSB general has been fired

Quite out of the blue Russian President Dmitry Medvedev fired colonel-general Vyatcheslav Ushakov, now a former deputy of the director of FSB (the successor of the Soviet KGB). Mr. Ushakov has been with the service since 1975; between 2003 and now he has served at the deputy in charge of public relations. Officially, the general was fired for "unethical conduct", however the rumor has it that he was fired for doing his job, - in particular, - by making it a public knowledge that the Office of the Procecutor General of Moscow region was involved in protection of illegal gambling.
