The Government of the Russian Federation

Committee Description

The Government of the Russian Federation, often referred to by its metonym the Kremlin, is the centre of power in the Russian Federation. Appointed by the President and responsible to the State Duma, the Government consists of the Chairman of the Government, the Vice-Chairman of the Government, and the federal ministries, each headed by a respective minister.

Set right in the present day, the Kremlin will discuss issues critical to maintaining the stability and power of a resurgent Russia. Delegates will have to meet Russia’s immense challenges, both internal and external. Will the Federation government collapse into itself like that of the Tsars and the Soviets? Or will delegates preserve Russia’s position in the world for eons to come?

The Kremlin is an intermediate committee. Delegates with some experience in MUN are preferred, although anybody with ability and interest may be chosen for this committee.

Please submit all position papers and inquiries relating to Kremlin to [email protected].
