MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s government is split over impacts of economic administration on the situation in the country’s economy, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday during his televised question-and-answer session.
“This is not a dispute between the presidential administration and the government. This is a dispute inside the community. The ministries are likewise split,” he said. At the same time, he stressed that there is no gap between the presidential administration and the cabinet of ministers.
The president also said he is against “cabinet leapfrogs.” In his words, cabinet members who are in office for less than one year should be given time “to realize themselves.”
“I doubt we need any cabinet leapfrogs,” he stressed. “It will bring about more harm than good.”
