NOVO-OGARYOVO, May 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Pricing and conclusion of contracts on the construction of nuclear-powered submarines had not been completed on time, which forced President Vladimir Putin to chair a conference on the subject on Friday, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
He recalled that the issue had been discussed in detail during Putin’s visit to Arkhangelsk. “Alas, the works are still to be accomplished,” Peskov said.
“Disagreements between clients and manufacturers remain, which has necessitated the conference chaired by the president,” he said.
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Ministers Anatoly Serdyukov and Denis Manturov, First Deputy Chairman of the Governmental Military-Industrial Commission Yuri Borisov and head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (UAC) Roman Trotsenko participated in the conference.
