MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. The Russian space vehicle manufacturer Khrunichev Center bought back rights to use the Angara launch vehicle overseas from the US Lockheed-Martin, chairman of the Research and Technical Board of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) Yuri Koptev said on Tuesday.
"They were returned. Khrunichev Center returned rights from Lockheed and no commitments are outstanding," Koptev said.
Khrunichev Center bought back exclusive rights to use the Angara launch vehicle outside Russia when acquiring the controlling stake in International Launch Services (ILS), Koptev added.
