MOSCOW, June 5 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin has supported businessman Mikhail Prokhorov’s decision to begin the process of his party registration. The ex-minister made this statement in his Twitter micro blog on Tuesday.
“Prokhorov has kept his promise. I support any work leading to the appearance of new representatives of democratic forces in the parliament of the Russian Federation,” Kudrin wrote.
