Vladimir Putin instructed Roskosmos to consider launching a superheavy missile from the spaceport Vostochny

During a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and head of Roscosmos Igor Komarov, Russian President Vladimir Putin set a task for Roscosmos to consider the possibility of launching an extra-heavy rocket from the Eastern Cosmodrome, the official 

"I would very much like to implement there (at the Vostochny cosmodrome) new projects with a promising new generation transport ship and with a new Angara, including a heavy class, which we want to implement at the Vostochny cosmodrome, which, we hope, will become the face of our space industry ", - reported to the President Komarov.

"A heavy missile was already envisaged, we should talk about a super-heavy rocket. We need to think about it," the president said.

The head of Roscosmos noted that work in this direction is also underway. According to him, in order to implement a super-heavy project, about 600 billion will be required only for the development of the ship and its preparation. It was decided to make the third stage of the "Angara", which would allow, with a two-launch scheme, to reach the lunar surface by a manned spacecraft and cosmonauts and together with a landing module.
