Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin (L) and Russian ex- Prime Minister and deputy head of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev (R) attend a meeting with members of Russian government at the Russia’s Government headquarters in Moscow, Russia, 17 January 2020.

Russian lawmakers on Thursday overwhelmingly approved Mikhail V. Mishustin as the new Prime Minister, elevating a little-known technocrat picked by President Vladimir Putin as part of an unexpected Kremlin shake-up.

Mr. Putin on Wednesday proposed major changes to the Russian Constitution that would spread political power more evenly, away from the president to the Parliament, the State Council and other government institutions.
