Russia’s Finance Minister Anton Siluanov has been dismissed from the position of Russia’s envoy to the Council of the Eurasian Development Bank (EDB).
“In connection with the profound changes taking place in international relations Russia’s Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov has been relieved of performing the duties of the plenipotentiary representative of the Russian Federation in the Council of the Eurasian Development Bank until the subsequent appointment of a new plenipotentiary representative of the Russian Federation to the Council of the Eurasian Development Bank,” reads the Russian government’s order, uploaded to the official Internet portal of legal information on Saturday.
