I have tried to embed an interview with Alexander Khloponin from RT, but for some reason it will not work. Anyway, the text of the interview is here, along with the video.
I am still not sure how I feel about this. I have been reading a lot about Khloponin, and I am pretty impressed with his resume, but I am not sure that his resume will make much of a difference. I am concerned with the fact that Khloponin has been given more responsibility as Deputy Prime Minister, and what it means politically for both Medvedev, and Putin. But I do not have an answer.
I will upload Khloponin’s biography soon.
