MOSCOW, December 28 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Deputy Prime Minster Dmitry Rogozin and head of the space agency Roscosmos, Vladimir Popovkin, have agreed to create a personnel reserve for the national space industry.
“The creation of a personnel reserve, including that of Roscosmos, is a question that we decided on today,” Rogozin told the media.
He pointed to a shortage of personnel in the space industry.
“There are young people and there are veterans, but middle-aged people in the space industry are few,” Rogozin said.
He promised that the level of professional training would continue to be raised and veterans of the Soviet space industry invited to join this effort.
Rogozin said that on January 23 he would hold a meeting with the rectors of the leading universities working for the defense industry and also for the space and nuclear power industries.
