NOVO-OGARYOVO, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian space industry structure needs upgrading, President Vladimir Putin told Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and Federal Space Agency Head Vladimir Popovkin on Friday. He asked them to make related proposals.
“I think the industry structure is the root of the problem. I am waiting for your proposals with regard to the structure upgrade. You may also propose personnel reshuffle if necessary,” Putin said, adding that a reshuffle had taken place at the Khrunichev Center. “It is necessary to analyze the interaction with partners and to improve the general legal framework.”
If not for the structural problems, the space industry would not have had its latest difficulties, Putin observed.
