Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev says dismissal of the government is quite possible amid criticism of the cabinet’s work. The prime minister has instructed his ministers to work hard anyway, RIA Novosti reports.

“The government’s resignation will necessarily take place, the question is only when,” Medvedev is quoted as saying on the NTV channel on Sunday.

“I am a more seasoned soldier than many of my colleagues. I told them: guys, you hold still and work, because sooner or later you will be all sacked anyway. This is life,” Medvedev is quoted as saying.
