NOVO-OGARYOVO, January 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on the status of the general designer of armaments. Speaking at a meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission on Tuesday Putin said that the list of general designers of military hardware will be very short - no more than 20 names - and the status and responsibility of such officials will grow.

“A decree has been signed on the general designer for the development of armaments, military and special technologies,” Putin said. He recalled that the need for such a position was first mentioned last September.

“The general designers will spearhead the efforts to create strategically important weapon systems and, respectively, they will be granted wide powers in terms of tapping the resources required,” Putin said.

“There will be no more than 20 such designers. Each candidature will be considered by the Military Industrial Commission’s board and then authorized at the Commission’s full-scale meeting.”

“The status and personal responsibility of each general designer will grow noticeably,” Putin said.

He said he hopes that the introduction of such a position will contribute to more effective implementation of key projects in the sphere of national defense and security.
