GORKI, September 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev demanded that discipline as strict as in Soviet times be restored in the space industry.
“No one has abolished strict discipline. It existed in Soviet times and it must be today,” Medvedev said at a meeting on reliability and quality in the space industry, held on Monday, September 10.
He believes that “liability of engineering and technical personnel must be increased, and requirements to personnel must be raised at all levels.”
“All this manifests itself in disciplinary liability within an enterprise and outside it in the liability of the whole company with all ensuing consequences,” the prime minister said, adding that this means “financial liability”.
