Thousands Take to Streets for NTV

Tens of thousands of people rallied across the country this weekend in support of indebted NTV television and its fight to ward off a takeover by creditor Gazprom.

No Violent Showdown Expected in TV Dispute

Gazprom may find a way to tear apart NTV's embattled editorial team in its bid to take control of the channel, but the gas giant is unlikely to resort to force, analysts said.

Lawmakers Urge Milosevic to Be Tried in Yugoslavia

Two leading Russian lawmakers said on Sunday that former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, arrested in Belgrade on Sunday, should not be turned over to the war crimes tribunal in the Hague. Gennady Seleznyov, speaker of the State Duma, said he did not believe that Yugoslav authorities would surrender Milosevic to the tribunal. ""It is that country's internal affair to try him,"" Seleznyov said in remarks reported by Interfax. ""If he is guilty, he will answer in accordance with the law. He said the charges of genocide brought against Milosevic are empty. ""When genocide is being discussed, orders to kill people are implied. But neither Milosevic, nor any other person issued such orders,"" he said. ""The International Criminal Tribunal should try those who organized the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Then it will become clear who is the criminal and who is the hero,"" Seleznyov said.
