The development of the Russian Arctic will be handled by a commission headed by Dmitry Rogozin

The problems of the Russian Arctic will be dealt with by a separate government commission, which will be headed by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, writes Kommersant, citing a high-ranking source in the presidential administration.

The presidential decree "On the establishment of a government commission on the Arctic" was signed on February 3. In accordance with it, the Government must determine the composition of the new structure within a month. The commission will deal with issues of national security and socio-economic development of the region.

This format was chosen by the President, since this year's budget will not be able to support the work of another Ministry. "We do not need a cumbersome bureaucratic body, but a flexible, efficiently working structure that will help to better coordinate the activities of ministries and departments, regions of the Russian Federation and business."- said the President in April 2014 at a meeting of the Security Council.
