Lawmakers in Russia are set to vote on the appointment of a new prime minister Thursday, a day after President Vladimir Putin kicked off an unexpected reshuffle of his inner circle. Mikhail Mishustin, the chief of Russia’s tax service, has already arrived at the Duma, the lower house of parliament, and is currently meeting with lawmakers. Mishustin, 53, would replace Dmitry Medvedev, Putin’s longtime ally, who was Russia’s prime minister for the past eight years.
