Kudrin stands by criticism of Medvedev

Alexei Kudrin, dismissed as Russia’s finance minister, said on Tuesday his remarks to the effect that he saw no role for himself in a future government led by Dmitry Medvedev had been well thought through and not spontaneous.

“On September 24 the long-term structure of government in our country became clear and I stated my position,” he said.

“This has absolutely nothing to do with emotions,” Kudrin said.
