MOSCOW, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin warned governors about delays in developing regional programs to launch the GLONASS satellite navigation system.
Those who can offer no sound excuse for delaying the launching of GLONASS programs will be summoned to Moscow and reprimanded, Rogozin warned at a session of the Military-Industrial Commission on civil use of the GLONASS system.
He was responding to Deputy Transport Minister Alexei Tsydenov's complaint that a number of provinces had not been developing these programs properly and that the authorities were unable to transfer goal-oriented subsidies because of faulty applications or other problems.
"Many programs have been approved, but there are certain concerns," Tsydenov said. "The subsidy envisioned in 2013 amounts to 1.5 billion rubles. However, regions have only applied for 1.06 billion roubles of this sum. No funds have been transferred yet."
Sometimes, the problem is in developing regional programs, and sometimes, it is incorrect drawing of applications, or the documents have not been signed by the authorized person, he went on, calling for completing this work within two weeks.
Rogozin criticized governors' inaction, ordering Tsydenov to summon to Moscow all the officials responsible for the project. He also set December 20 as the deadline for rectifying the situation.
