MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) —— All talk about possible structure and composition of Russia’s new government is nothing more but a speculation until consultations between Putin and Medvedev are over, press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
“[Prime Minister and President Elect] Vladimir Putin has repeatedly said that the cabinet needs cardinal structural and personnel changes,” Peskov said in an interview with the Itogi magazine. “However, I have never heard either Putin or Medvedev using the term “administrative reform” in respect of would-be changes.”
“There is Medvedev and there is Putin. They have said that they are in consultations concerning a new government, it structure and personalities. As far as I know, nothing has been officially announced in this respect. When these two persons come to an agreement, everything will be made public,” Peskov stressed.
He also said that prime minister’s annual report planned to be read out at a State Duma session on April 11 would be more that a “mere routine report about the results of the last year.”
“It will be Putin’s last speech at the parliament in the capacity of prime minister and concurrently as the president elect. It means that Vladimir Vladimirovich cannot but speak about future perspectives,” Peskov added.
