Agency Regulating Defense Industries Mulled

Russian President Vladimir Putin has directed Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov to look into a possibility of setting up an agency, with the President, that would regulate military-industrial complex activities, Deputy Prime Minister Ilya Klebanov said after attending a joint board meeting of the State Council and the Security Council. He added that a number of governors had advocated the measure. He went on to pronounce himself "categorically opposed" to the creation of such an agency.
