MOSCOW, July 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to conduct an audit of property of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).
“We should conduct an audit, how the property is managed, what problems exist and how to adjust an enormous mechanism,” the Russian president said at a meeting with RAS President-Elect Vladimir Fortov on Wednesday.
Putin has found some disputable issues and the issues that can be supported in the bill on a reform in the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). “I have studied attentively the position of those, who are ardent supporters of the reform and its critics. It contains the issues that can be supported and disputable issues,” the Russian president noted.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has also proposed to Vladimir Fortov to temporarily combine the post of the president of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the head of the RAS Property Management Agency.
“For the transitional period it would be possible to combine the post of the president of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the head of the RAS Property Management Agency,” the Russian president said.
However, Fortov did not give a reply to this proposal, while the talks were being held in the presence of journalists.
