The Roskosmos Corporation dismissed the general director of the Center for Operation of Ground Space Infrastructure Facilities. Andrey Okhlopkov was dismissed today, November 27, by the decision of the board of directors of TsENKI.

According to the press service of Roskosmos, Ruslan Mukhamedzhanov has become the acting general director of TsENKI. The ex-manager will leave the center without compensation due to repeated shortcomings in his work. Okhlopkov has been the head of TsENKI since June 2018.

In 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 TsENKI employees - Andrei Okhlopkov and TsENKI chief engineer Vladimir Zhuk.

This week for machinations during the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur region arrested the chief engineer of the Center for the operation of ground space infrastructure Vladimir Zhuk.

Last year, Dmitry Medvedev said that the pace of construction of facilities at the Vostochny cosmodrome are insufficient, which can lead to disruption of the terms of their commissioning.
