Source: Medvedev suffered information attack, made by potential competitor
The Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has undergone an information attack by a potential competitor in the fight for the seat of the Head of the Cabinet, said the source in the Kremlin to Gazeta.Ru.
A senior source of Gazeta.Ru believed that promotion of Medvedev’s statements about the salaries of teachers and the indexation of pensions on the Internet was inspired intentially. One of the objectives of these attacks can also be a decreasing of votes of Edinaya Rossiya in the parliamentary elections.
"The Prime Minister has suffered for his openness, - the source said. - Speaking at the forum, he has just shared the story of his own path as a teacher with the participants. And as a result, his quotes were taken out of context and replicated. "
In this information attack, there can be a lot of interested parties, including business entities, the source said.
Earlier, the Financial Times wrote that after the parliamentary elections, the President Vladimir Putin may resign Dmitry Medvedev as the Prime Minister; the Government will be headed by the former Finance Minister Alexey Kudrin.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
