Criticism of the former Minister of Finance, head of Center for strategic research of Alexey Kudrin to the public administration system of Russia, which he compared “with the old creaky machine,” has nothing to do with the possibility of changing the head of the government Dmitry Medvedev. This was stated press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, calling Kudrin “autoriteit expert.”
“It is, rather, the verbal and political science exercise. Kudrin is a very authoritative expert, the expert did not narrow, but rather wide, so it is absolutely normal that he has a point of view on a wide range of issues. And to link everything with some electoral aspirations may be, it is clear and understandable from any point of view, but it is wrong in fact”, — said the speaker of the Kremlin.
