Then the representatives of the defence industry reported Shoigu about their successes in loose clothing, and in the camera lens got people in t-shirts. The Minister, this situation caused “lack of understanding”.
In mid-December, the Deputy defense Minister for logistics Dmitry Bulgakov, together with state Secretary Nikolai Pankov said Shoigu on his proposals. According to their plan of a new form of leadership of the MIC is black in color and looks like a casual suit for the Russian military.

According to him, the form must “to wear while participating in joint activities (panels, meetings, forums, exhibitions) held by the defense Ministry.”
