NEW YORK -- Andrei Medvedev gained a reputation at Wimbledon this year for being a free spirit. He would give out autographed pictures of himself to anyone who asked for one -- for free.But as far as interviews go, Medvedev is thinking of taking a new tack: The more you ask, the more you pay. At least that's what No. 8 seed Medvedev said after yesterday's 6-2, 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 victory over Fernando Meligini of Argentina."You just talk to me direct, we can make a deal," Medvedev, 19, said at the end of a rambling, 30-minute post-match news conference.

President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev agreed Wednesday to open negotiations on a treaty that could slash nuclear arsenals by one-third as part of what they said would be a new era in relations between the two countries. The agreement, the result of the first face-to-face meeting between the two leaders and coming on the eve of Thursday's Group of 20 economic summit, included a promise by Obama to visit Moscow this summer to pursue the talks. "Over the last several years, the relationship between our two countries has been allowed to drift," Obama said.

MOSCOW -- With the apparent election of Vladimir V. Putin's chosen successor, Dmitry Medvedev, as Russia's new president yesterday, the country wades into uncharted waters as it reconciles the emergence of a new leader with the reluctance of its popular, czarlike ruler to fully relinquish power. Russia's tumultuous history has always been grounded by one constant - that czars, general secretaries and presidents never shared the helm. That is expected to change when Medvedev is inaugurated in May and names Putin his prime minister.

MOSCOW -- Dmitry Medvedev, a corporate lawyer tapped and groomed for the Kremlin by Vladimir V. Putin, was sworn in as president yesterday under the watchful gaze of his mentor and predecessor. As soon as the ceremony was over, just as they had planned for months, Medvedev nominated Putin for prime minister. With the two men apparently poised to rule in tandem, Russians were left waiting with a mix of anxiety and curiosity for hints of who's really in charge: Medvedev, 42, who holds the highest job in the land, or Putin, the former KGB officer and wily politician who seems determined to keep a grip on power.

MOSCOW -- President Vladimir V. Putin formally declared yesterday that he intends to become prime minister next year, ensuring his dominance of the Russian government even after his term ends. Putin said at a meeting of his party, United Russia, that he had accepted an offer from his close aide, Dmitri A. Medvedev, to move to the prime minister's office if Medvedev wins the presidency in March, which is likely. "If our people will trust Mr. Medvedev and elect him the new president of the Russian federation, I will be prepared to continue our joint work, in this case in the position of premier of the government," Putin said.

MOSCOW -- The soft-spoken bureaucrat just presented to the world as Russian President Vladimir V. Putin's hand-picked successor appeared on state television yesterday with a deferential plea: The country must remain under Putin's leadership.
