"[Vladimir] Yakunin as the chief executive of Russian Railways did a lot for development of this largest infrastructural monopoly," Medvedev said. "Despite a challenging situation in the economy, Russian Railways are developing nevertheless," the prime minister said.
Belozerov was chosen particularly because the first deputy minister of transport was recently dealing with such issues as development of motorways and railways. "You know this sphere fairly well. You are aware of all the difficulties, the situation with the budget and with investments. This is a highly important economic project coordinated directly with the state for obvious reasons," Medvedev said.
