ST. PETERSBURG, June 19 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin urged the Defence Ministry and defence enterprises to coordinate their work to create an aerospace defence system.
“The creation of such a system requires careful preparation, effective organisation and thorough analysis of threats and offensive arms development plans and, of course, close coordination with other armed services,” Putin said.
“The Defence Ministry and the defence industry should take this into account during R&D to create the aerospace defence system,” he added.
The president also warned officials that they will bear personal responsibility for failure to meet the schedule.
“Serial production and future developments should proceed strictly in compliance with the schedule, without delays and failures,” he said.
“There should be personal responsibility,” Putin said.
