MOSCOW, December 22 (Itar-Tass) — President Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday appointed Sergei Ivanov the Kremlin chief of staff. Sergei Ivanov has occupied the post of deputy prime minister until now. The head of state has signed the relevant decree, Medvedev's spokeswoman Natalia Timakova told reporters.
