On the last day of his work in the RF government Vladimir Putin included Acting Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin in the list of candidates for the Board of Directors of Rosneftegaz. This decision is either directly contrary to the policy or Medvedev or confirms Sechin’s departure from the government.
This Putin’s decision was not agreed upon with Medvedev, a Vedomosti source is certain. Officials of the government’s financial and economic block also did not know about it. It is clear that the order concerning Sechin was an individual decision that was made behind the scenes and at the last minute, a federal official said.
Moscow’s Most Expensive Ostozhenka Street Now Has Competitors
Yakimanka, Taganka and Sretenka Streets may in the near future deprive Ostozhenka Street of the leadership as the most elite and expensive district of Moscow, as well as will challenge the city’s second most elite district - Khamovniki.
Vladimir Putin’s refusal to attend the Group of Eight summit and a bilateral meeting with Barack Obama has aroused many comments and versions. Many have seen in this an unfriendly message to the United States and the West in general. But regardless of whether it is true or not, the strange demarche by President Putin is unlikely to become a major international event. This event is internal. It is, apparently, the continuation of Putin’s chain of actions that better than words declare his agenda.
The official explanation is that Putin is too busy with the formation of the government and therefore sends Medvedev instead. What’s wrong with believing this version? If the reason for the refusal is that that has been declared – it will rather weaken the image of Putin; it’s another thing that the G8 leaders will never believe it, so there will be no losses.
