An interlocutor of Kommersant newspaper, close to the Kremlin, confirmed that former minister, and now counsellor of the President of Russia Mikhail Zurabov will change V. Chernomyrdin. Mikhail Zurabov himself refused to speak about his possible appointment with Kommersant newspaper yesterday.
At the same time, having known about the appointment of Mr. Zurabov, which is prepared, both Russian MFA and State Duma were out of balance. Deputy chairman of the Committee of State Duma on CIS issues Konstantin Zatulin said to Kommersant newspaper: “An appointment of Zurabov will be a mistake. Especially coming from interests of an affair. He is not political figure, he is a manager, and not popular”.
