MOSCOW - Russian parliament voted on Friday to oust opposition deputy Gennady Gudkov, a move he said was organized by the Kremlin and stepped up a crackdown on dissent by President Vladimir Putin.

The State Duma, or lower house, expelled Gudkov over allegations that he broke the law by operating a business while a member of the chamber. Gudkov, who has helped organize anti-Putin protests, denies the charges but could now face trial and two years in jail.
