Plenary meeting on May 14, 2024

Members of the State Duma approved the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Deputy Prime Ministers and Federal Ministers (except for the Ministers of the so-called “power bloc”). After State Duma’s approval, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed a special decree on their appointment.

Members of the State Duma fulfilled their new powers granted by the Constitution of the Russian Federation according to its amendments adopted in 2020, when Vladimir Putin decided to transfer part of the powers of the head of state to the Parliament.

“A new stage of joint work between the legislative and executive authorities begins. If earlier problems were often explained by shortcomings in the work of the Government or one of the Ministers, now both the Government and deputies of the State Duma will bear responsibility for the results,” emphasized the Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin Volodin Vyacheslav Victorovich Volodin
