Rumors of an impending appointment of Dvorkovich confirmed the publication of the interlocutors in the White house, the presidential administration and in state-owned companies and the railway industry. It is noted that he Belozerov would prefer to stay in his current position.
According to one interlocutor, about the reshuffle was to announce another 5 October, but the dates were shifted. Clarity needs to come at the beginning of this week.
It is worth noting that now Dvorkovich is Chairman of the Board of Directors, although, as noted by the interlocutor of MK, it’s more of an Executive position that does not involve active management actions.
