Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov kept their posts in a government shake-up unveiled on Tuesday, the Kremlin said, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Lavrov, 69, has been the face of Moscow’s muscular foreign policy for more than a decade and a half as the Kremlin has reasserted what President Vladimir Putin said was Russia’s rightful standing as a world power.
