Russian Federation confirms Dmitry Medvedev as its PM

May 10, 2018, 11:14

A total of 430 lawmakers participated in the voting, with 374 voting in favour of Medvedev, while 56 MPs voted against, reported Sputnik International.

As ties between Washington and Moscow soured badly early in Putin's previous presidential term, Russian authorities criticized USA officials including President Barack Obama for speaking of American "exceptionalism", echoing a long-standing Russian accusation that the United States is set on dominating the world.

The ruling and the ultra-nationalist LDPR party backed Medvedev, while the Communist and Just said they opposed his candidacy.

Putin will this year once again carry a photograph of his father. Medvedev had already spent the previous year working on the program.

The annual V-Day parade kicked off in Moscow to mark the 73rd anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

Medvedev in turn thanked Putin for his support and said his government would work towards fulfilling new national targets Putin announced following his inauguration for a fourth Kremlin term this week.

Medvedev also has served as the President of Russian Federation between 2008 and 2012, with Vladimir Putin as Prime Minister.

Later on, Medvedev became Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, when Vladimir Putin was elected the Russian president, on May 8, 2012.

Medvedev's leadership has focused on the "modernization", and economic development of Russian Federation, and the decision follows Putin's announcement of a strategic development plan to guide Russia's economic and technological progress through 2024.
