Recently, various sources have reported that there will be serious changes in Russia's central government. The most notable of these allegations is the resignation of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
Axar.az reports that, this was reported by the Russian media.
According to the influential Russian publication Sobesednik, along with Lavrov, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova will be sent to resign from the main diplomatic office. But even if both Lavrov and Zakharova resign, they will not leave big politics.
Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to meet with members of the Federation Council next week, on September 23, in the Kremlin's Grand Assembly Hall, Sobesednik reports, citing the popular Nezigar Telegram channel. According to the source, this meeting is not accidental, because the Kremlin intends to fundamentally change the composition of the upper house of the Russian parliament - the Federation Council - by the end of this year.
Sergei Lavrov is offered a life senator in the Federation Council. Among Lavrov's successors at the Foreign Ministry is Foreign Intelligence Service chief Sergei Naryshkin. However, experts say that the appointment seems problematic now that the European Union and the United States have blacklisted Naryshkin. For information, Sergei Naryshkin was the speaker of the State Duma of the sixth convocation. Until then, he served as head of the Presidential Administration (2008-2011) and Deputy Prime Minister (2004-2008). Naryshkin has been heading the Foreign Intelligence Service since October 2016.
Another popular telegram confirmed the news of Lavrov's resignation, saying that Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova would be given a job in the State Duma. Interestingly, the dismissal of Lavrov and Zakharova from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is not seen as a loss of high positions, but as a new task in the reconstruction of affairs within the country's parliament. Experts say the Kremlin wants to strengthen coordination between both houses of parliament and the Council of State. In addition, the State Duma and the Federation Council will strengthen control over the Cabinet of Ministers and play a leading role in the approval of government members. The established State Council will act as a moderator of the entire public administration system, as well as control all branches of government.
