Putin proposed to Rogozin to strengthen the staff of Roskosmos with profile specialists.

“We must also look at strengthening of the team, so that this whole industry is headed by people who know how it works from the inside. It should be good specialists, highly qualified scientists, organizers”- the President said. Putin noted, that he would discuss this issue with Rogozin.

Until now, the head of “Roskosmos” was Igor Komarov, who headed the state corporation since January 21, 2015.
