MOSCOW, September 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The State Duma, lower house of the Russian parliament, approved on Tuesday the resignation of Alina Kabayeva, an Olympic champion rhythmic gymnast.

Kabayeva, 31, stepped down as lawmaker to head the National Media Group, one of Russia’s largest private media holdings.

"Alina Kabayeva who headed the public council of the National Media Group for six years has accepted the offer to become the holding's board chairman," Kabayeva's spokesman said.
