Medvedev stated that Russia’s government would resign in full, allowing Putin to appoint new ministers as he embarks on the future changes in country's leadership
According to Kremlin's press service, before announcing the resignation of the cabinet, Medvedev met with Putin to discuss his state-of-the-nation address.
Putin has instructed the outgoing government to perform its duties until a new administration is in place.
It is also reported that Putin plans to create a position of the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, and offered it to Medvedev.
