For fraud during the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur region, the chief engineer of the Center for the Operation of Ground Space Infrastructure (TSENKI) was arrested. Vladimir Zhuk was taken into custody due to serious flaws during the construction of the first stage of the cosmodrome.

According to the press service of the Blagoveshchensk court of the Amur region, Zhuk was involved in the signing of documents on the compliance of the constructed facilities of the first stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome with the requirements of design documentation. At the same time, the State Architectural and Construction Supervision of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation issued critical comments on them. For this, he can be imprisoned for up to four years. The chief engineer was taken into custody for two months - until January 23, 2021.

At the end of October, the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin fired the general director of the FKU "Directorate of the Vostochny cosmodrome" Evgeny Rogozu. He also reprimanded two employees of TsENKI - general director Andrey Okhlopkov and chief engineer Vladimir Zhuk.
