Medvedev to become Russian leader

Dmitry Medvedev is to be inaugurated as Russia's third president since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Kremlin Palace ceremony will begin at midday (0800 GMT) in front of 2,400 invited guests.

For the 42-year-old father of one, the inauguration will cap a sharp ascendance from obscurity.
