The Government of the Russian Federation will control the construction of the spaceport "Vostochny"

Following the meeting under the President of the Russian Federation, held at the construction site of the future Vostochny cosmodrome, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin announced that the functions of coordinating the construction of the cosmodrome were transferred from Roscosmos to the Russian Government.

“The President supported my proposal to increase the level of coordination of work. The President has been informed about the creation of a coordination center directly at the cosmodrome, which is headed by a representative of my secretariat from the government house, this is what is called the "eye of Moscow", - said Dmitry Rogozin.

He further recalled that work on the construction of the cosmodrome is entering the home stretch, a little more than a year is left before the first launch of a middle-class rocket from the first launch pad. “The President made a decision that the Commission for Coordination of Work will be headed by the Deputy Prime Minister, and not the head of Roscosmos, that is, it is clear that I am not just taking on personal responsibility, but will directly coordinate all activities to create the Vostochny cosmodrome,” commented the vice -premiere.

Earlier, at a meeting on the development of the cosmodrome, head of state Vladimir Putin said that since 2011, more than 100 billion rubles have been allocated for the construction of Vostochny. Another 50 billion is planned to be allocated in 2015. The President also stressed that all the terms and stages of the project's development must be met.

In addition, on the evening of September 2, the objects of the future cosmodrome were connected to the power grids of the Far East - on Tuesday, the Ledyanaya substation was put into operation. This happened during a teleconference linking "Vostochny" (Vladimir Putin) with "Ledyanoy" (head of FGC UES Andrei Murov), the press service of the government of the Amur region reports.
