Which position in Russia is more powerful in the field of the economy:

and why?

1 Answer 1


Chairman of the Accounts Chamber is more powerful, but it is some another power.

Chairman is, in fact, an auditor of goverment's spendings. So, he doesn't decide how to spend budget. But he looks over ways how goverment do it and reports directly to president.

  • In which way? It is a watch dog for goverment's spendings. Do you mean your another question, about why it is Kudrin? Commented Jul 11, 2018 at 8:18
  • According to the article, Earlier this month, Kudrin was said to be consideration for a top job in economic policy in the Kremlin where he would have helped direct overhauls to accelerate growth. - Kudrin was probably opting for Minister of Finance position. But, he got the position of Chairman of the Accounts Chamber. Am I correct?
