The presidential administration has no relation to the political activity of the business Ombudsman Boris Titov, said the representative of the Kremlin administration on domestic policy. He said: “Indeed, according to the internal allocation of responsibilities [in the Kremlin] the activities as Titov presidential Commissioner for entrepreneurs’ rights supervised by the first Deputy chief of staff Vyacheslav Volodin]. As for his [Titov] desires to become a party leader it was his desire and his project.”
The representative of the domestic management added that, in his opinion, “Titov starts with that.” “Instead of formulating an alternative programme already existing parties, he starts to hide behind the presidential administration. This has no basis and is unlikely to bring dividends,” he said .
