President Putin has signed a decree establishing a federal government-sponsored Rocket and Space Industry Research and Test Center, the Kremlin press service said on Friday.

It said the center would be created by reorganizing the Scientific and Research Institute of Chemical Engineering, which will be merged with the Scientific and Research Institute of Chemical and Construction Machine Manufacturing.

The president instructed the government to report on the decree's implementation within nine months and to submit proposals on the center's official registration and inclusion into the list of strategic enterprises and strategic joint stock companies.

A presidential decree takes effect the day it is signed.

Russian Space Program Still Plagued By Numerous Problems
Moscow (RIA Novosti) Mar 04, 2008
The development of Russia's high-tech sector, primarily the national space program, resembles a Camel Trophy race, while official reports do not always reflect the real situation. In late February, Anatoly Perminov, director of the Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos), told the respected Novosti Kosmonavtiki (Space News) magazine that he positively assessed the results of Russia's space exploration in 2007. He said that all projects had been financed in line with official programs.
