Russian President Vladimir Putin met with the members of his new government on the evening of May 14 (Local time Moscow), just days after beginning his fifth term in office.

During the meeting, Putin emphasized the need to establish a work agenda for the next six years.

He urged his new administration to consider the proposals made by State Duma deputies during previous debates when drafting their work plans and government programs.

"There are many tasks ahead; we need to act together," Putin remarked during the meeting according to Sputnik.

"I have just signed decrees on the formation of a new government. Congratulations to you all," the Russian president said.

Putin expressed his hope that the new ministers, many of whom previously served as regional governors, would use their experience to address issues at the federal level.

Putin's government will be composed of 21 ministers and 10 deputy ministers.

He highlighted the appointment of Andrei Belousov as the new Minister of Defense and the continued leadership of Sergey Lavrov as the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
