Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev appointed the deputy Economic Development Minister Evgeniy Elin as an acting Economic Development Minister after Ulyukayev was charged with bribery, Medvedev's press attache Natalya Timakova said.

"Medvedev signed a decree imposing temporary duties of minister of economic development on Deputy Minister of Economic Development Evgeny Elin," Sputnik cited Timakova as saying.

Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that Russian President Vladimir Putin has not yet decided to dismiss Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev.

Ulyukayev has been charged with taking an especially large bribe and extortion, Investigative Committee spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko said earlier.
