Russian finance minister Kudrin's 'sensational' resignation
Russian media is describing the resignation of Alexei Kudrin as a "sensation" and "the most high profile resignation of Dmitry Medvedev's presidency".
The long serving Russian finance minister left the cabinet after a public falling out with President Medvedev.
His departure has provided a rare glimpse into the conflicts at the heart of the Russian leadership.
The BBC's Steve Rosenberg reports from Moscow.
