ITAR-TASS reports that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has "empowered" Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin "to be in charge of Russia's space sector."
Russian newly appointed Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin wants to hear a report from the Russian Space Agency on the causes of recent failure on Thursday, December 29.

"On Thursday, I expect a report from top officials from the Russian Space Agency on recent failures," he said in his Twitter microblog...

"The last accident, and the entire train of such accident speak for themselves," the prime minister stressed. "It is necessary to look deep into the problems, to study them in detail and to word proposals."

According to the head of government, after military acceptance inspection was cancelled many things have changed for the worse. "It does not mean we must get back to the former regulation instruments but its is absolutely obvious that the existing instruments are not enough," he added.

Dmitry Rogozin's new position is as Deputy Prime Minister of the Defense Industry. Since space is considered to be a defense sector, he has the ability to pass down orders to the head of Roscosmos, Vladimir Popovkin.

In addition to ordering Roscosmos to prepare a blanket investigation of the recent failures due on January 25th, he has ordered Roscosmos to prepare a plan of space strategy for future activities up to 2030 and beyond. This plan will be due about the middle of next month.
