MOSCOW, December 29 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin has promised stringent measures in view of security breaches at Roscosmos (Federal Space Agency) facilities. The FSA should submit its proposals on that score before the end of January next year.
"Stringent-enough measures will be taken. Therefore I want to say once again that there shall be no laxity any longer on the part of either 'drowsy cats' that will be exemplarily punished soon if they fail to take measures (to ensure the security of facilities) or 'insolent mice' - alien persons that penetrated with photo cameras (into a facility)," the Vice-Premier told journalists after meeting Roscosmos Director Vladimir Popovkin.
"Thereby, we shall be through with this matter, and elementary and strict enough order will be introduced," Rogozin said, pointing out that he heard explanations given by the Roscosmos leadership on the problem of breaches of security measures at facilities that are under their jurisdiction.
"We give certain time to correct all the flaws that have been revealed, including publicly, too. I give time till the end of January, after which selective inspections will be made on my instruction in the security system of facilities that are under Roscosmos’ authority and in those branches that are within its jurisdiction," Rogozin said.
The Vice-Premier also pointed out that the work would be done to standardize approaches to ensuring strategic facilities' security. "I want to say that I do not advise anyone any longer to penetrate into strategic facilities," Rogozin emphasized.
