What do other people think about Russian New Prime Minister?

Politics A- A A+

Russian President Vladimir Putin nominated Mikhail Mishustin, a 53-year-old chief of the Russian Federal Tax Service for the position of Russian prime minister after Dmitry Medvedev resigned on Wednesday. A previously little-known tax technocrat is now set to head the Russian government.

Deutsche Welle posted opinions about Mishutsin:

Former opposition lawmaker Gennadiy Gudkov called Mishustin "a new faceless functionary without ambition" who embodies a system that is "detrimental for the economy."

Tatiana Stanovaya, nonresident scholar at the Carnegie Moscow Center took to social media to call Mishustin a "technocratic placeholder," saying that he has no political experience or popularity with the electorate.

Analyst Gleb Pavlovsky, a former Putin adviser, told the Interfax news agency that Mishustin is "a splendid bureaucrat, in the best sense of the word."
