The meeting was held via videoconference.
Mikhail Mishustin’s opening remarks:
Good afternoon, colleagues,
We continue the work of the Coordination Council.
The speed of implementing our targeted tasks must be increased in all areas, including the supply of equipment, gear, medicine, and infrastructure construction. Current production programmes must be clearly implemented within understandable and reasonable shipping schedules for everything necessary.
The Ministry of Defence, the Russian Guards, the Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Security Service have already reported on bringing their material security standards in line with their real needs. We need to determine the priority for targeted shipping schedules.
It is important to do this promptly: work is now being completed to approve these schedules for the near future. They will be used by suppliers and vendors to coordinate their activities including inter-factory cooperation and all decisions on raw materials and components.
The coordinators of the working groups, together with the heads of industrial enterprises, need to analyse the results of the first month as part of our council and remove the remaining technical obstacles in production processes.
Let me remind you that both officials and administrators in the Government remain personally responsible for each area of support for the special military operation.
The president not only noted the importance of the dynamics in terms of volume and specification, but also demanded improvements in quality. In this regard, we need to analyse the activities of the engineering centres when reviewing the information directly from the combat operations, the proposed solutions and the prospects for implementation, and report on the results at one of the next council meetings.
I would like to talk separately about providing our defenders with medical care, including emergency and specialised care. Specialists from the Federal Medical-Biological Agency are involved in this. They establish mobile detachments that work on the front lines to maintain the health of our servicemen and save their lives.
The Government will allocate almost 230 million roubles to pay these medical workers, as well as to purchase the medical devices necessary for the treatment of patients.
I would like to draw your attention to the fact that even in the winter, the restoration of civilian infrastructure, the construction and equipping of fortifications and shelters should not stop for even a second. Resolving these issues is a priority in the special military operation zone and in the border areas.
At this stage, it is important to develop and communicate to the responsible managers the needed technical specifications and the required budgetary financing in a timely manner. Conciliation procedures need to be stepped up to ensure continuity and consistency in construction processes.
The heads of the departments and regions concerned should determine the responsible inspectors and control the efficiency of the documentation.
During today’s meeting, I would ask the heads of the working groups to report on what has been done as part of reaching the targets, and on the decisions taken to identify additional contractors to supply the necessary material resources, and the heads of law enforcement agencies to report on the current supply.
As a separate issue, we will consider the results of the decisions previously taken by the council.
