MOSCOW, June 27 (Itar-Tass) — Launch of five satellites from the Baikonur Space Center that was put off earlier due to contradictions with Kazakhstan, on the territory of which the center is located, has been scheduled for July 22, an official at the Russian Federal Space Agency /Roscosmos/ said Wednesday.
“The Federal Space Agency plans launching in July a block of satellites consisting of the space probes Kanopus-B, BKA, MKA-FKI, ADS-1, and TET-1,” he said. “The liftoff will take place July 22 at the Baikonur site.”
The Russian and Kazakhstani authorities had contradictions regarding the area where the debris of the launch vehicles is supposed to fall out. To settle this and some other issues, the Roscosmos director Vladimir Popovkin planned to visit Kazakhstan in at the end of May.
“It’s important for us to preclude a need for getting permissions every year or for every launch,” a high-ranking source said then on the contents of negotiations between the members of Russian and Kazakhstani political leaderships regarding space exploration.
“It’s important to regulate all of this on a stable inter-governmental basis,” he said.
