MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. The Russian Cabinet’s resignation is out of the agenda at the moment, Speaker of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Sergei Naryshkin said in an interview for the TASS project Top Officials.
"The government’s resignation is not on the agenda at the moment. Definitely, not. Such issues should be approached in a very cautious and balanced way," he said. "An anti-crisis plan has been adopted, and there is no doubt that its tasks will be coped with and targets met on time."
He said he was confident that in any situation the State Duma and the government were obliged to act constructively, in particular, when they discuss measures to support the national economy. "Everybody is well aware this is a no easy situation, which requires still more business-like and concerted action," he added.
When asked whether a constructive attitude implied only wholesale approval or permitted harsh criticism, he said that meaningful was always useful. "And harshness can be understood differently," Naryshkin added.
