'TSAR' PUTIN PURGING THE OLD GUARD?

Russia's Putin fires longtime ally Ivanov in power reshuffle

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday fired Sergei Ivanov, his chief of staff and one of his closest allies, in the Kremlin's most high-profile power reshuffling in years. The 63-year-old Ivanov is the latest long-standing Putin ally to have been sidelined in what analysts are describing as the Russian leader's attempt to bring in a new, younger entourage.

In a symbolic gesture, Putin appointed Ivanov a special envoy for transportation and the environment, a stunning downgrade for the man who had been considered one of the most influential people in Russia.

Ivanov, however, kept his seat on the Security Council, Russia's top security body, which discusses war and peace and includes Putin, the chairs of parliament and the chiefs of Russian security services.
