Vladimir Putin has appointed the head of “Rosatom” Sergey Kiriyenko, the first Deputy head of the presidential administration of the Russian Federation. We will remind that earlier this post was occupied by Vyacheslav Volodin, who became the speaker of the state Duma. At the same time the appointment of Kiriyenko previously reported by Russian media, but in the Kremlin, these reports were not confirmed.

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov immediately after Vladimir Putin delivered his speech in the state Duma, announced that the President of Russia has signed the decree about appointment of the head of “Rosatom” Sergey Kiriyenko, the first Deputy head of his administration. The same decree Vladimir Putin dismissed from the post of Vyacheslav Volodin, who is the parliamentary party supported as speaker of the lower chamber.
Also, according to TASS Kiriyenko dismissed from the post of the head of Rosatom.
Earlier media reports, commenting on the possible appointment of Kiriyenko, the presidential administration called the move “Kindersurprise 2.0.”. Recall that the nickname “kinder-surprise” Kirienko received when in the spring of 1998 at the age of 35 years became Prime Minister.
The media also wondered whether to change the internal policy of Russia with the arrival of Kiriyenko, who once was a colleague of Boris Nemtsov and Anatoly Chubais, and which was part of the so-called circle of “young reformers” of the liberal persuasion.
