NOVO-OGARYOVO, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, who after the dismissal of Alexei Kudrin from the position of Finance Minister was appointed to oversee the financial segment of the Cabinet, has promised that no changes in the ministry’s operation will follow.
