Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has reportedly fired the deputy chief of the country’s Federal Security Service (FSB).

The decision to fire Vyacheslav Ushakov for “poor performance” was made at the request of FSB chief Alexander Bortnikovas, according to Russian news wire RIA Novosti, quoting a spokesperson for Russia’s president.
