German Klimenko has advised the President on the digital issues for two years, sometimes making rather obscure statements which indicated his insufficient knowledge. A good example is his clear overestimation of mining viruses infestation in Russia. Despite this, sometimes there were some prudent statements too: he has stated that cryptocurrency market was volatile due to its size.

Unknown who will replace Mr. Klimenko on a new post, although there were some indirect indications that the Internet and digital issues would become more controlled by Sergey Kirienko, First Deputy Head of the administration. Another official with a similar job of practical implementation of IT in Russia (Igor Shegolev) has also left this institution.
