Gazprom and Nashists for Medvedev

Russian president Vladimir Putin’s choice of successor, first deputy prime minister Dmitry Medvedev, will have the support of United Russia’s campaign staff, pro-Kremlin youth organisations like Nashi, and the state gas monopoly Gazprom, which he heads.

United Russia will appoint Medvedev as its presidential candidate on 17 December 2007. The most likely person to head Medvedev’s election campaign is Kremlin’s “propaganda minister”, Vladislav Surkov, who managed United Russia’s campaign as well. .
