SOCHI, September 20. /ITAR-TASS/. There are no plans to reduce the number of ministries or to make any other changes to the Russian government’s structure at the moment, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Saturday.

“If we feel that some ministries have already had their day, changed their role and are not necessary any more, we will abolish them,” Medvedev told Sergei Brilev's Vesti v Subbotu (News on Saturday) television programme.

“But in fact, I have no such plans in the near term,” the prime minister said, noting that “reductions should be reasonable”.

“A government is a living thing, and its structure may change depending on tasks we perform,” he said, adding that new government ministries would probably be created to oversee certain regions such as Russia's Urals mountains and Siberia.
