MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. There is no reason to assume that the government has been undermined or draw up any ambitious plans concerning the cabinet’s activities, Russia’s Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Speaker Valentina Matviyenko told reporters on Wednesday.
"There is no need to draw any premature conclusions. The government has been operating as usual, (there is) no reason to assume that the government has been undermined," she said commenting on the arrest and dismissal of Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev.
The speaker pointed out that "it is too early" to make any "ambitious plans concerning the government’s activities."
On Monday, Ulyukayev was detained as he had received $2 mln as a bribe for a positive assessment provided by the ministry that allowed oil major Rosneft to purchase the government’s 50% stake in the Bashneft oil company. Ulyukayev is the first federal minister to be arrested in the history of modern Russia. On Tuesday night, President Vladimir Putin relieved Ulyukayev of his duties over the loss of confidence.
