Dmitry Rogozin, Director General of Roskosmos, posted a video on his Twitter page about the construction of the second stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur Region. He showed how the technique works and how the excavation works.

As the head of Roskosmos noted in the video caption, now the site is developing a pit for a universal launch facility. It includes a starting table with a fire ring, an engineering center and command center, as well as an underground refueling and maintenance infrastructure. All this, according to Rogozin, will be located underground.


Dmitry Rogozin also demonstrated how ground is being sampled under deep embedment networks. According to him, it is necessary to ensure the safety of the structure.


Construction of the second stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome should be completed by the end of the year 2022. At the same time, tests of the ground complex will begin. Now workers are digging a pit under a new launch pad. In autumn, concrete pouring under the construction should begin.

Recently, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the pace of construction of facilities at the spaceport is insufficient. According to him, this may lead to break deadlines their commissioning.
