"Roskosmos" and "Spetsstroy" come out of the band of uncoordinated, disorganized actions during the construction of the spaceport "Vostochny" - Rogozin

Preparations for the construction of the second stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome (Amur Region) for the launch of the Angara will begin next year, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told reporters today.

“We decided to abandon the wide format, as it required the final touches to the portrait of the consolidated work schedule for each object of the Vostochny cosmodrome. We agreed that next year, when preparatory work for the launch of the Soyuz launch vehicle from the first launch table, we will have to go to the formation of all the necessary design and estimate documentation for the second stage of the cosmodrome - the construction of a launch pad for the "Angara", - said the Deputy Prime Minister.

He noted that the Angara test is proceeding normally, so there is no reason to postpone the date of its launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome. Earlier it was reported that the first launch of the Angara from the Vostochny cosmodrome will take place in 2018.

D. Rogozin stressed that the date for the completion of the cosmodrome construction set by the President of Russia and the Government of the Russian Federation is not subject to adjustment, and the launch of Soyuz-2 from Vostochny should take place in December 2015.

According to the deputy prime minister, today the work of Roskosmos and Spetsstroy has been adjusted and both structures are emerging from a band of uncoordinated, disorganized actions.

"We have our biggest complaints about how the documentation was initially formed, which is received by the builders with a lag. There are, of course, problems with the selection of construction organizations, since there is not enough labor resources in the Far East," Rogozin said.

This time Rogozin decided not to hold a traditional meeting, all interested structures are participants. The talks were held behind closed doors in a narrow circle with the participation of Deputy Prime Minister, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Construction Leonid Stavitsky, head of Roscosmos Oleg Ostapenko and Director of Spetsstroy Alexander Volosov.
