Vladimir Putin instructed to revise pricing at the Vostochny space center
Russian President Vladimir Putin at an expanded meeting of the Security Council said that one of the key tasks for the development of the space industry should be the development of ground infrastructure, including more active use of the Plesetsk cosmodrome and completion of the construction of the second phase of the Vostochny cosmodrome. He instructed the government to review the rates for these objects.
According to Vladimir Putin, not a single company undertakes to complete the work at the cosmodromes with these rates. The president asked for a realistic approach to the calculations and not to overestimate prices, since in the near future the launch loads on the Vostochny space center should increase - Russia needs independent access to space from its territory.
In February, the Crocus Group company, owned by Aras Agalarov, stated that ready to participate in the construction of the spaceport East in the Amur region, if received the relevant instructions of the government. After the Security Council meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov, who oversees the military-industrial complex, confirmed that the Crocus Group could become the developer of the second phase of the Eastern one.
Construction of the second launch pad at Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur Region is estimated in 39 billion rubles. Recently "Roskosmos" received funding for the construction of the second stage of the cosmodrome. The state corporation hoped that the work would begin in April-May.
