The Arbitration Court of the Amur Region has suspended construction at the Vostochny cosmodrome. Work on the launch site for the Angara rocket has been frozen for up to 90 days. However, the contractor announces that the work will continue.

As the RIA News", the court brought the production and construction organization “Kazan” liable for the continuation of the work until the drafting of acts on the elimination of previously identified deficiencies. The lawsuit against the contractor was filed by the department of state architectural and construction supervision of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The press service of the company "Kazan" said that the work continues, and the court's decision will be appealed. They explained that the proceedings began due to untimely submitted documents.

At the end of January, the Russian government instructed the Treasury check the contract for the construction of a launch complex for Angara missiles at the Vostochny cosmodrome.

The second stage of the cosmodrome construction involves the construction of a launch pad for the Angara-A5 launch vehicles and related infrastructure. Construction of the second stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur Region began in 2019 and should be completed by the end of the year 2022.
