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

Following the results of the meeting at the President of the Russian Federation that took place at the site of the construction of the future Vostochny cosmodrome, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that the coordination functions for the construction of the cosmodrome had been transferred from Roskosmos to the Government of the Russian Federation.

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

He also recalled that the construction of the cosmodrome is on the finish line, a little more than a year left before the first launch of the medium-range missile from the first launching table. "The president decided that the commission for coordinating the work will be headed by the deputy chairman of the government, not the head of Roskosmos, that is, I understand that I am taking not just personal responsibility, but I will directly coordinate the entire activity on creating the Vostochny cosmodrome, -Premier.

Earlier, at a meeting on the development of the cosmodrome, the head of state Vladimir Putin said that since 2011, more than 100 billion rubles have been allocated to the construction of the Vostochny. More about 50 billions are planned to be allocated in 2015 year. The President also stressed that all the timelines and stages of development of the project should be met.

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