Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has picked his government team, Vedomosti reported, without saying where it got the information.

The team is likely to be approved by President Vladimir Putin today and to start work tomorrow, the newspaper said.

Arkady Dvorkovich, a presidential aide, may become deputy premier in charge of industry, fuel and energy, transport and agriculture; Igor Shuvalov, the acting deputy prime minister, may keeps his responsibility for finance and state-asset sales, the newspaper said. Economy Minister Elvira Nabiullina is likely to leave her post and take a role in President Vladimir Putin’s administration, Vedomosti said.
