Newly appointed Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Vladimir] Potanin is unknown to the wider public and so he is in need of an introduction. ...

It is hard to imagine such a publicity-shy figure as Potanin. He avoids all contact with journalists (in three years he has held one press conference in Russia and a second in Switzerland).
