RUSSIA MEDIA FREEDOM

** FILE ** In this Nov. 4, 2004 file photo, President Vladimir Putin, left, speaks with gymnast Alina Kabaeva as he hosts Russia's Olympic athletes at a Kremlin banquet in Moscow. Russia's lower house of parliament voted Friday April 25, 2008 for new restrictions on the news media after a Moscow newspaper reported that President Vladimir Putin had divorced his wife and planned to marry a champion gymnast. The State Duma voted 339-1 on Friday to allow authorities to suspend and close down media outlets for libel and slander following the furor over the story, which was denied by both Putin and the former gymnast.
