Mikhail Mishustin, nominated by Russian President Vladimir Putin for prime minister, has called to prepare all the documents necessary to implement the goals outlined in Putin's address.
"Yesterday's address must be perceived, first of all, as a programme of social justice based on our traditional values, addressed to people, to their most pressing problems. In first place is concern for children, families, their prosperity and improving their quality of life. Thanks to macroeconomic stability and a surplus budget, we have financial resources to implement all the tasks set by the president, starting in January this year", Mishustin said.
The Russian PM nominee has also said that Russia has all the sources to solve the tasks set by Vladimir Putin.
The Kremlin’s press service subsequently announced that Putin had submitted the candidacy of the head of Russia's Federal Tax Service, Mikhail Mishustin, as the new prime minister for consideration by the lower house of parliament.
