Kremlin: No official pressure behind RBC editors' resignation: agency

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian authorities did not pressure top editors of the RBC media group to leave their jobs, Interfax news agency cited Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.

Three top editors from the media group, whose outlets have published disclosures about the commercial interests of people close to President Vladimir Putin, left their jobs on Friday after disagreements with the group’s management.
