Dubinin's Voice

[New Central Bank chairman Sergei] Dubinin's increased voice in government hearings is, on the one hand, designed to demonstrate the Central Bank's ever-increasing significance in economic and even general policy. On the other, integrating the independent head of the Central Bank reflects the necessity for much closer cooperation and coordination in the policies of the Cabinet of Ministers and the Russian bank chief. All else aside, the decision can best be attributed to the fact that Dubinin is a member of Viktor Chernomyrdin's team. Segodnya, Nov. 30
