MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. Russia’s former finance minister Alexey Kudrin does not have plans to take up any government jobs again - for the time being as a minimum. He said it speaking live over the Russian News Service radio.
"I’m not returning anywhere and I’m not even commenting on the issue," Kudrin said. "I think newspaper canards are flying out faster than any possible events take place."
Kudrin occupied the post of finance minister from 2000 through 2011. At present he stands at the head of the Committee for Public Initiatives and a member of the presidium of the Presidential Council for Economy.
Russian media said at the end of 2015 Kudrin might return to the government as early as in the beginning of 2016. The Kremlin officials stayed away from comments on the situation.
