Russia's new governmental state defense committee will make it easier to exercise effective control over the country's military industry
Russia's new governmental state defense committee will make it easier to exercise effective control over the country's military industry, the defense minister said Tuesday. "The committee should quickly prepare governmental drafts or presidential decrees, if necessary," said Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov, who is also deputy prime minister. The new committee, established by presidential decree Monday, effectively puts previous temporary structures on a permanent footing, Ivanov said. He denied it would lead to increased bureaucracy in the field. "We are not creating a new bureaucracy and [hiring] new officials, but creating a new mechanism of administration," Ivanov said. President Vladimir Putin Monday appointed Ivanov to chair the committee and former Ministry of Economic Development and Trade official Vladislav Putilin as his first deputy. Ivanov, who has been touted as a possible successor to Putin, said Putilin would be in charge of the commission's day-to-day operations. "This will help us to exercise effective control over the military-industrial complex and concrete programs for its development, and strictly to monitor their implementation," Ivanov said. Putilin was appointed deputy chief of staff of the strategic missile forces in 1992. From July 2002 to May 2004, he served as deputy head of the Economic Development and Trade Ministry, and was later appointed director of the ministry's defense and security programs department.
