MOSCOW, January 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s former finance minister Alexei Kudrin believes that the head of the Central Election Commission, Vladimir Churov, should resign.
“Distrust to Churov causes distrust to the elections on March 4. He will let down the authorities, if he does not file resignation,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
He also wrote that he heard Churov’s interview with the Echo of Moscow radio station recorded on January 5 and did not change his opinion in relation to Churov’s resignation.
In the interview Vladimir Churov said he did not consider it necessary to discuss the issue of his resignation at that moment.
“I would like very much to be able to answer this question in four years, but I won’t answer it right now,” he said.
Churov noted that the talks making him the central figure of the recent parliamentary election campaign are overexaggerated.
“That’s totally unfair,” Churov said. “I really think my role in history has been overstated.”
