MOSCOW. Dec 4 (Interfax-AVN) - An interdepartmental logistics
liaison department will be set up in Russia for comprehensive
logistical support of law-enforcement agencies within the framework
of the Joint Unified Logistics System (JULS), a competent source
in the Defense Ministry told Interfax-Military News Agency Wednesday.
The department's establishment is envisaged by a joint order
of the Defense Ministry, the Federal Border Guard Service, the Federal
Railway Troops Service, the Federal Government Communication and Information
Agency, and the Special Construction Service of
Russia [a body responsible for the construction of secret objects].
According to the source, the main task of the department is
going to be the implementation of the plan of transition to JULS. The plan
was approved by the Russian government on February 19, 2002.
The department will continuingly select decisions within JULS,
the source said.
He added that the joint order in question is now being registered
in the Justice Ministry.

Parus specialises in repairing ship-borne artillery and missile
systems. It also has a package of export orders, including repairs of missile
and artillery systems of the Zubr air cushion vessels that have been purchased
by Greece, as well as repairs of the Algerian Navy's guard ships. Under
the contract with Gazoavtomatika the plant will get its first civilian
order. According to Khrustalev, Parus will benefit at least RUR2bn (USD68.69m)
from its implementation this year. The plant is forced to seek civilian
orders due to unfavourable economic situation. Despite being a leading
repair enterprise of the Defence Ministry, it does not get enough military
orders to work at full rate of operation. The state pays for the defence
order timely and in full this year, but profits from its implementation
are too low to ensure the plant's financial and economic stability. (Agentstvo
