Russia will continue to develop competencies and areas that will ensure the combat capability of the Russian Armed Forces, including in terms of the special military operation in Ukraine. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister and Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov on the air of the RBC TV channel.
We are talking about both competencies related to the special operation in Ukraine and issues of improving weapons for use in the future. He called the military-industrial complex (DIC) the “backbone of industry” that now performs “very important tasks.”
On July 15, President Vladimir Putin appointed Manturov Deputy Prime Minister. By another decree, the head of state dismissed Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, who was in charge of space and the defense industry in the Cabinet. He will head Roskosmos instead of Dmitry Rogozin.
As Manturov himself noted, as Deputy Prime Minister he will oversee the same issues that he dealt with in the Ministry of Industry and Trade. According to information on the government website, he will deal with issues including the defense industry & mdash; policy in the field of development of the defense complex, the implementation of the state armaments program and the state defense order, as well as programs for the development of the defense, nuclear and rocket and space industries. The Deputy Prime Minister will oversee international cooperation and research activities in this area.
In addition, Manturov will be responsible for aviation and automotive industry, agricultural engineering, machine tool building, light and food industries, metallurgy, timber industry, hydrocarbon processing, chemical industry, radio and microelectronics, trade regulation and consumer protection, environmental safety and waste management and other issues.
Speaking at an extraordinary meeting of the State Duma, the new deputy head of government said that Russia needs to turn from “an absolutely market-oriented industrial policy to a policy of ensuring technological sovereignty.” “In addition, in the interests of our manufacturers, it is necessary to consolidate demand, gradually replacing imported machinery and equipment that are used in various sectors of the economy,” — he added. Manturov also said that Russia intends to revive the sub-sector of electronic engineering, “without which even the most advanced global manufacturer cannot work today.”
