MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin called for increasing the Federal Space Agency’s staff.
“We need a strong Roscosmos, with a larger staff and with better funding so that we could hire select top-class specialists,” he said on Wednesday, December 5.
Commenting on media reports that the Finance Ministry, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Labour Ministry have rejected Roscosmos initiative to double its staff, Rogozin said it was quite logical that the ministries did not like it.
“Certainly, they can say that they don’t like it. They do not want to pay more money and take up more work to do. But Roscosmos should submit its substantiation for each new position it wants to create,” Rogozin said.
