While inspecting the construction of the Pacific Fleet’s facility on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Avacha Bay on Tuesday, Shoigu expressed his dissatisfaction with the work of the local supervising bodies overseeing the quality of construction works.
“This is a very serious matter to joke about [the construction dates],” Shoigu said. “There are no more jokes.”
“Everything must be ready by that time,” Shoigu said adding that the quality of the construction works must be increased.
The defense minister ordered General Gerasimov and Commander of the Eastern Military District, Col.-Gen. Sergey Surovkin to take the construction work of the Pacific Fleet’s facility under tight control and deliver weekly reports on it.
