MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Acting Finance Minister Anton Siluanov will replace Alexei Kudrin in his positions in the IMF, the World Bank and the Eurasian Economic Community’s anti-crisis fund, Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak told the media on Thursday.
"As far as the anti-crisis is concerned, we are preparing documents for Siluanov,” he said. “The same concerns the documents for Russia’s representative in the IMF and World Bank."
On Monday, President Dmitry Medvedev dismissed Alexei Kudrin from the position of finance minister.
However, earlier on Thursday, presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters that Kudrin would continue to lead the National Banking Council.
"Despite the president’s decision to dismiss Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, in the opinion of the president he is a good specialist in finance and macroeconomics, and therefore he will lead the National Banking Council, at least until a new finance minister has been appointed, and he will remain the head of the council under the president for financial markets, where his skills may also be in demand," said the presidential aide.
