Policy: After Putin secured a second term as president earlier this year, Djumin was appointed as one of Putin’s advisers in charge of the defense industry.

Now he will lead a state council that Putin himself established in 2000, and which is responsible for giving advice on matters that are considered to be particularly important for Russia.
