Russian prosecutors dropped embezzlement charges against media mogul and Jewish community leader Vladimir Goussinsky, citing a lack of evidence. The officials also freed up his property, which had been impounded earlier this month. Goussinsky, who had been ordered to remain in Moscow during the course of the investigation, immediately left Russia for Spain, where his family is living.
