The Minister of Economic Development Maxim Oreshkin headed the Management Board of the Center for Strategic Research, which replaced Alexei Kudrin in this post.
"Today I resigned from my powers as the head of the Center for Strategic Research Foundation," said Kudrin RIA Novosti.
Prior to this, the government issued a decree according to which the Ministry of Economic Development will establish a CSR on behalf of the Russian Federation. According to Kudrin, the analytical center will accept several orders from the state.
Since 2016, Kudrin has been the Chairman of the CSR Management Board. In May this year he was appointed head of the Chamber of Commerce.
