SOCHI, November 16. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has not received proposals from the prime minister so far on the candidate for the new Economic Development Minister, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.
"No," Peskov said, giving no details when such a proposal could be expected.
The Kremlin spokesman said he did not know if this issue could be discussed between Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during Thursday’s meeting with the permanent members of the Security Council in Sochi.
On Wednesday, Putin is due to continue a series of meetings with the leadership of the defense ministry to discuss military construction.
Putin dismissed Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev late on Tuesday citing a "loss of trust."
Ulyukayev was detained on Monday on suspicion of receiving $2 mln for the positive assessment provided by the ministry that allowed Rosneft to purchase the government’s 50% stake in the Bashneft oil firm.
