Interview with Evgeny Satanovsky

Dmitry Medvedev's proposal to have Putin as the country's prime minister is a sign of stability and a continuation of work already underway, Evgeny Satanovsky, the President of the Institute of Middle Eastern Studies, believes.

“We have a situation of stability the future is predictable, the team, that works now, will prologue its work. It is safe, because, as the Chinese say, God save you from living in a time of great changes. And nobody needs to change a team that had a success and bring in another, unpredictable one. If Medvedev gets elected – now he has much more chances then anyone else – and Putin agrees to become the Prime Minister, that would mean the team will be really strong and professional,” Satanovsky said.
