The Russian government is looking at dismissing the director general of the Moscow Institute of Heat Engineering, Sergei Nikulin, who proved to be unable to pacify the institute’s general designer Yuri Solomonov.
Despite successful tests of the Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile, the government has decided to sack Sergei Nikulin, the director general of Corporation Moscow Institute of Heat Engineering, which manufactures missiles, a source in one of related ministries told the Izvestia newspaper.
According to the source, a draft resolution to the effect to be voted at an extraordinary shareholder meeting of the institute has been agreed with the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), the institute’s head organization, and with the Federal State Property Management Agency, signed by Minister of Economic Development Elvira Nabiullina and submitted to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who is in charge of the space and defence sectors.
Another draft resolution has been prepared to appoint the current first deputy director, Alexander Dorofeyev, as its interim sole executive body.
