A Russian Jewish tycoon ceded control of his media holdings to the country’s natural gas monopoly, which is controlled by the Russian government. Vladimir Goussinsky, who left the country in July after being jailed briefly on fraud charges, has no plans to return to Russia to face questioning, his lawyers said. In a related development, another Jewish media mogul, Boris Berezovsky, also decided to remain abroad rather than face possible arrest.
