  BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Kiriyenko - the young reformer
Sergei Kiriyenko laughs during a parliament session before debate which sealed his position as PM Sergei Kiriyenko was confirmed as Russia's new prime minister in April.
Thus Mr Kiriyenko is closely associated with the so-called group of "Young Reformers" in the government, headed by Mr Nemtsov and his then fellow Deputy Premier Anatoli Chubais.
Sergei Kiriyenko's main advantage is that he has made fewer enemies than Mr Chubais and Mr Nemtsov, and so is able more credibly to appeal for the opposition's co-operation in tackling Russia's severe economic and social problems.

 Harvard University Gazette
Former Russian Prime Minister Sergei Kiriyenko spoke at Harvard on Monday, Dec. 7, arguing that there is still hope for economic reform in his country, but that first there must be a change in consciousness.
Kiriyenko blamed populist leaders who have given people the idea that reform would be "painless and quick." As a result, the population is now tired and disappointed and suffering from a lack of consensus.
Kiriyenko's recommendations include a program of realistic public education, reorganization of Russia's crippling debt, and the entry of the country's healthiest industries into the world market, which, he said, would provide an incentive for economic reform.

 CNN - Yeltsin nominee rejected on first try - April 10, 1998
MOSCOW (CNN) -- In a defeat for Russian President Boris Yeltsin, parliament on Friday rejected Sergei Kiriyenko, complaining that the nominee for prime minister was too young and inexperienced to solve Russia's enormous problems.
But following Kiriyenko's speech, the Liberal Democratic Party of ultranationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky -- the only faction in the Duma that had pledged to vote for Kiriyenko -- announced it was withdrawing support because he had not said whether its members were being considered for the Cabinet.
Kiriyenko, 35, has spent only about a year in government, most of it as a junior member although he was energy minister for four months under former Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin.

 East European Constitutional Review
Kiriyenko sharply reduced the number of deputy prime ministers from nine to three, thereby eliminating the distinction of “first deputy prime minister.” The three new deputy prime ministers—holdovers Boris Nemtsov and Oleg Sysuev and newcomer Viktor Khrystenko—are all associated with the “young reformers” camp.
Along with Kiriyenko, the new cabinet leaders are considered free of strong ties to the financial or industrial lobbies occupying prominent positions in the Russian political landscape.
As Kiriyenko himself told the Moscow daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta, “I don’t owe anything to anybody, except to the president.” The new momentum for economic reform—and consequent weakening of the financial and industrial lobbies—became evident on April 30 when Anatoly Chubais was named chief executive of United Energy Systems (UES), Russia’s electricity monopoly.

 East European Constitutional Review
Sergei Kiriyenko's observations are among the most balanced and defensible that have been made on the crisis Russia is undergoing, a topic that has elicited far more heat and obfuscation than enlightenment based on calm and dispassionate analysis.
The "four problems" Kiriyenko cites (political instability that hampers tax collection, lack of a balanced budget, overemphasis on macroeconomic balance, and inherent limits on the government's ability to raise revenue), while real, are incomplete and stated with less precision than is desirable.
I believe that Kiriyenko should have given more attention than he did to crime and corruption and to feasible means for addressing these scourges.
