Kudrin’s Deputies

leave a comment »

I am not sure why Putin feels the need to add additional people to the Government structure, but he has done so again.  According to The Moscow Times:

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin appointed Alexei Savatyugin to be a deputy finance minister, the government said in a statement Thursday.

Putin signed an order at the end of last year creating an additional deputy position for Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, giving him an eighth.

Savatyugin has headed the ministry’s department of financial policy since 2004 and has board seats at Rosgosstrakh, Sberbank, the Mortgage Lending Agency, Rosselkhozbank and the Deposit Insurance Agency.
