The embattled founder of VK, Russia's largest social networking site, said this week that the company is now "under the complete control" of two oligarchs with close ties to President Vladimir Putin.

"It's interesting that shareholders did not have the courage to do it directly," Durov, 29, wrote on his VK page.

Durov said he refused to do so, though he's gradually ceded control of the company in recent months and has long butted heads with government authorities.
