Russian President Vladimir Putin sees the current government as responsible and professional and at the same time welcomes former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin's intention to be more actively involved in the work of presidential expert institutions.
Putin was asked the same question during Thursday's Q&A session.
In explaining why Kudrin was encouraged to be more actively engaged in expert institutions, Putin said, "You know, I have never lost contact with Alexei Leonidovich [Kudrin]. We have always maintained friendly relations. He is a very good specialist and a brilliant expert. And if he wants to make his contribution to resolving the problems facing the country, why not? He wants this now."
"The format of his involvement in our joint work that we have found together with him satisfies him, and I believe it satisfies us as well," he said.
