Construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome lags behind schedule - Medvedev

Dmitry Rogozin, during a meeting with Deputy Prime Ministers led by Dmitry Medvedev, spoke about the construction progress of the Vostochny cosmodrome, the press service of the Government of the Russian Federation reports.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev demanded to eliminate the backlog in the construction of the Vosochny cosmodrome in the Amur region.

"Now there is an active phase of construction. There is, nevertheless, some lag, as I understand it, from the schedule, which is certainly bad. We need to fill this gap," the head of government said at a meeting with his deputies.

Medvedev also said that he intends to meet with the head of Roscosmos. "I would like to generally hear about what is planned to be done, because there are real problems - and they are not only of an objective nature, they are of a subjective nature," he said and instructed Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin to schedule such a meeting next week.

In turn, Rogozin reported that he visits the cosmodrome almost monthly to synchronize all the work. "The main reason for the lag behind the previously planned deadlines is the synchronization of actions, on the one hand, to prepare the construction readiness of specific objects of the cosmodrome - the technical complex of the launch pad of the city of Tsiolkovsky. And in the course of creating the necessary construction readiness, the slow delivery of technological equipment. ", - he explained.

According to him, by December 25 it is planned to complete all concrete work at the first launching pad.

The first stage of the cosmodrome is to be commissioned in December 2015, at the same time it is planned to launch the spacecraft Lomonosov and Aist from the new cosmodrome.

"The two spacecraft Lomonosov and Aist, which we plan to launch in December next year, will be delivered to the cosmodrome in the middle of next year for pre-flight training," Rogozin said.
