Russia’s Newly-Created Coordination Council Hold First Meeting

The Russian government has received the right to introduce administrative innovations by the decision of the Coordination Council for the Provision of a Special Military Operation. 

The economic issues of the special operation will now be swifted from the exclusive powers of the Ministry of Defense, which from now on will deal only with military issues, while Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and the governors of the State Council, represented by Moscow Mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, have received political responsibility for military resources and the right to administrative reforms. Thus, Mishustin will be in charge of material resources, and the governors will be in charge of human resources.

The Coordination Council has broad powers. Judging by the open part of the meeting with the participation of the President, the main task of this body is to improve the coordination and manageability of the state in the conditions of a special operation. The key innovation is the application of new management approaches that will help to overcome administrative barriers.

“We need a faster pace of work in all areas and an extremely realistic assessment of the situation, the state of affairs as a whole. This concerns not only the special military operation itself, it concerns all our work in almost all areas,” Putin said.

These words were pronounced on October 25, when the Russian leader held the first meeting of the Coordination Council – a structure created for interaction between authorities within the framework of tasks arising during the special operation. Putin called on “everyone to tune in to meaningful work in a new format” and not hide behind formalities and standard bureaucratic procedures.

“It is in order for all issues to be resolved faster and more efficiently that we have created such a mechanism as the Coordination Council,” he explained.

As reminded, on October 19, the maximum level of response was introduced in the DPR, LPR, as well as in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions; in the regions of the Russian Federation bordering Ukraine — the average level of response, in other regions of the Southern and Central Federal Districts — the level of high readiness, in other subjects of the Russian Federation — basic readiness.
