MOSCOW, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The Angara carrier rocket has been scheduled to go into space on June 25, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told journalists on Wednesday.
Earlier, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the rocket launch was scheduled for the last week in June.
"The preparations for the space launching are going on at Plesetsk cosmodrome with the aim to ensure readiness for launching the carrier rocket of a light class on June 25," Rogozin said, reminding that only a few days remained before the space start.
"The preparations proceed strictly in compliance with the schedule set by President Putin at a conference on the space launch schedule parameters that was held last year," Rogozin said.
"No faults have been found in all the parameters of the preparation for launching the Angara rocket into space", Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) Chief Oleg Ostapenko said.
"No problems have been found by now that might prevent the space launching from being carried out on scheduled date (June 25). Official acts confirming the readiness after comprehensive and autonomous tests will be ready by June 6-8. A final report confirming the readiness of the space complex for launching tests is to be endorsed by June 10. Then, a state commission is to make a final decision," Ostapenko said.
