“In this context, it is obvious that we, as the government of the Russian Federation, must provide the President of our country with the opportunity to make all the necessary decisions, and in these conditions, I believe that it was right, in accordance with Article 117 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, for the government of the Russian Federation in its current composition has submitted his resignation, ”he added.
Putin, in turn, asked the government to fulfill its duties in full until the formation of a new cabinet. He also announced his intention to introduce the position of Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia and offer it to Medvedev.
“Dmitry Anatolyevich has always dealt with these issues, and from the point of view of increasing our defense capability and security. I consider it possible and asked him about it, so that in the future he would deal with questions of this very property, this category. I think it is possible and I will do it in the near future - I will introduce the post of deputy chairman of the Security Council, ”Putin said.
The Cabinet of Ministers did not know in advance about plans to resign, says a BBC source close to the government. The fact that Putin will meet with the government after the message became known during the announcement of the message. “But we thought it was a meeting to implement the message,” he says.
On Wednesday, January 17, Vladimir Putin delivered a message to the Federal Assembly. He specifically proposed make changes to the constitution regarding the redistribution of powers between the president and other institutions of power.
The current composition of the government was formed in May 2018. Medvedev has led the government since 2012.
As the "RIA News" referring to the Kremlin press service, Vladimir Putin signed a decree resigning the government.
“In accordance with paragraph“ c ”of Article 83 and part two of Article 117 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, I decide: to announce the resignation of the Government of the Russian Federation,” the message says.
Temporary duties of the prime minister are entrusted to Dmitry Medvedev. The president also instructed the government to perform duties until the formation of a new Cabinet.
"This Decree comes into force on the day of its signing", - added in the message.
Usually, the cabinet of ministers resigns in connection with the inauguration of the president. Medvedev did this too, for the last time in May 2018. It also happened that the heads of state dissolved the cabinet on their own initiative. This happened five times - Boris Yeltsin dismissed the government of Viktor Chernomyrdin and Sergei Kirienko in 1998, Yevgeny Primakov and Sergei Stepashin in 1999, Vladimir Putin - the government of Mikhail Kasyanov in 2004.
And only once until today the cabinet has left on its own initiative. On September 12, 2007, Mikhail Fradkov petitioned the president for the resignation of the government.
