Russian President Vladimir Putin has dismissed one of his advisers, Vladislav Surkov, Russian government’s press office said.
Vladimir Putin has already signed executive order on Vladislav Surkov.
Earlier Russian media said Surkov had resigned because of a change of course towards Ukraine. Mr Surkov oversaw policy towards Ukraine, but was recently relieved of some of that responsibility.
Vladislav Surkov was appointed as President’s adviser on September 20, 2013 in charge of Russia’s ties with Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries.
