"Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov said on Monday he would run for president against Prime Minister Vladimir Putin next March, weeks after falling out with the Kremlin over his abortive leadership of a small pro-business party. ... Prokhorov, a 46-year-old metals tycoon who owns the NBA's New Jersey Nets, accused the Kremlin of engineering a revolt to force him out of the Right Cause party in September and political analysts say he has no chance of victory."
