The Head of Government held a meeting of the Coordination Council to address the needs of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, other troops, formations and military bodies. Plans and schedules, he emphasized, are being fully implemented and, in some cases, much ahead of schedule, complex production processes have been established in unprecedented time.
At the last meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission, the President, Mishustin recalled, highlighted the multiplied increase in the production of popular weapons. In the first eight months of 2023 it exceeded the total for 2022. “This also applies to key types of military equipment, the production of which has more than doubled, as well as vehicles, communication systems, electronic warfare equipment and recognition,” said the head of the Cabinet of Ministers.
The Cabinet of Ministers has simplified the procedure for issuing certificates to war veterans.
The president praised the work done in the military-industrial complex. At the same time, an order was received to more actively introduce advanced technologies and control the quality of products. Mikhail Mishustin called on leaders at all levels to pay special attention to this: “We must constantly analyze information and receive feedback. Not only the execution of various military tasks, but also the life and health of our defenders depends on this. And of course, “This information will allow designers to improve the characteristics and increase the reliability of the equipment.”
An extremely important area of work of the coordination council was and remains the provision of social guarantees to the participants in the special military operation and their families. Everyone who fulfills his duty must receive the necessary assistance, the Prime Minister said. Previously, it was decided to assign combat veteran status to all those participating in the SVO. “Each of them received equal rights to the support measures provided by the State,” the prime minister recalled.
In an effort to save people from paperwork, the government has simplified the procedure for issuing a combat veteran certificate. To obtain it, it is no longer necessary to submit an application: the departments will do everything on their own based on the information already available.
Branches of the state fund “Defenders of the Fatherland” began to operate in all regions of the country. It was created to help SVO participants and their families solve emerging problems. “As for the purchase of medical products and medicines for veterans discharged from service, participants in a special military operation, the government has approved rules for maintaining a unified database on purchases made by the fund. Such a resource Information will significantly simplify the process itself, which will make it possible to provide them with the necessary goods, including means of rehabilitation,” said Mikhail Mishustin.
The Prime Minister urged not to slow down the momentum of support for the special operation and to do everything possible to produce the necessary products ahead of schedule: “Even a slight delay from the planned schedule is unacceptable.”
Separately, the Prime Minister drew attention to the issue of material supply for military personnel, including mobilized citizens: “It is necessary to continue to carefully ensure that funding is provided in a timely and complete manner. People do their duty military, and it is our duty to provide them with everything they need.”
Mikhail Mishustin expanded the possibilities of verifying the authenticity of products. The option has been added to the Government Services app. Through it you can find out where, when and by whom the product was made, and obtain information about its weight or volume. To carry out verification, you need to click on the “Goscan” button in the application and scan a special graphic symbol on the package.
The service is organized through interaction with the state labeling system “Honest Sign”. Currently, the list of products subject to labeling includes medicines, dietary supplements, dairy products, drinking water, beer, tobacco, shoes, fur coats, light industrial products, cameras and flash lamps, perfumes and eau de toilette, antiseptics, automobile tires, medical products and wheelchairs. The list is constantly expanding.
