Billionaire Prokhorov Opposes Putin’s Centralization of Power

Billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, who’s taken the helm of a pro-business party, said he opposed Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s centralization of power and poked fun at a nationwide pro-Putin movement.

“I don’t agree with the model of government for the country,” Prokhorov said in an interview published today in the newspaper Kommersant and confirmed by his press office. “Everything is determined by the center; it’s impossible for the country to progress that way.”
