MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — The former director of Russia’s federal service for military-technical cooperation, Mikhail Dmitriyev, has been appointed Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu’s adviser, the ministry’s spokeswoman, Darya Zatulina, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“Yes, Mikhail Dmitriyev is one of the defence minister’s advisers,” she said.
Deputy Defence Minister Ruslan Tsalikov also confirmed this information.
“It is true that Dmitriyev was appointed the defence minister’s adviser,” he said.
Dmitriyev in his new capacity will be in charge of those issues - military-technical cooperation in particular - he controlled before, a source at the federal service for military-technical cooperation said.
On November 21, Dmitriyev accompanied Shoigu on his visit to Beijing, where the 17th meeting of the Russian-Chinese intergovernmental commission on military-technical cooperation took place.
Dmitriyev had headed the federal service for military-technical cooperation since its creation in 2004 until May 2012. Following the president’s decree he was replaced on this post by Alexander Fomin.
