MOSCOW, Jan 16 (PRIME) -- The faction of the United Russia party in the State Duma, parliamentТs lower chamber, has unanimously supported Mikhail Mishustin for the post of the prime minister, aide to the Duma speaker Anastasiya Kashevarova said in her Telegram channel on Thursday.

УThe United Russia unanimously,Ф she wrote.

A source who participated in a meeting between Mishustin and the United Russia faction told PRIME that the plans outlined in President Vladimir PutinТs Wednesday address to parliament will be MishustinТs priority. УThe address is his priority,Ф the source said.

On Wednesday, the Russian government chaired by Dmitry Medvedev resigned after the presidential address to parliament.

If he wants to discuss the issue with parliament, we will surely discuss it. Maybe, this topic will be voiced at a meeting with the factions, maybe, this is an issue which will be separated later during the consultations,Ф he said.
