Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has appointed AvtoVAZ ex-head Igor Komarov as deputy chief of the Federal Space Agency.
The prime minister has signed a resolution to this effect, the government press service reported on Wednesday.
The Federal Space Agency is facing reforms.
At the meeting in Novo Ogaryovo Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin told President Vladimir Putin about the reform of the rocket and space complex to create a united rocket and space corporation on the base of the Instrument-Making Research Technological Institute. The plan has been approved by the Russian president.
On October 10 the premier appointed Oleg Ostapenko as Roscosmos new head. Ostapenko replaced Vladimir Popovkin on this position. Five days later it became known that the agency’s deputy head, Alexander Lopatin, resigned.
