Deputy Prime Minister of Russia

A Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation (Russian: Заместитель председателя Правительства Российской Федерации) is a member of the Government of Russia. The post is commonly referred to as "deputy prime minister" or "vice prime minister" both in and outside of Russia.

According to the Chapter 6, Article 110 of the Constitution of Russia, "The Government of the Russian Federation consists of the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation and federal ministries". Article 112 states that the Chairman of the Government (Prime Minister) recommends candidates for the post of Deputy Chairmen to the President of Russia.[1]

The role of deputy chairmen of government of the Russian Federation is to coordinate the activities of federal government bodies and carry out other tasks in response to particular issues or events. It is a temporary position that is usually held by multiple people at once, with the most senior of them being the First Deputy Prime Minister of Russia (there can also be more than one first deputy).
