Putin allies have taken over the Russian Facebook VKontakte

image-247The now ex-general director of the Russian facebook VKontakte, Pavel Durov, announced that he has been removed from his position and will leave Russia soon. The news broke out after a month of intense infighting between the Russian government and the owners of VKontakte in order to shut down groups or remove messages posted on the social network by the opposition. VKontakte is a social network very similar to Facebook and popular among ex-soviet union countries and it has an estimated of 240,000,000 registered users world-wide.
