VOSTOCHNY SPACEPORT, April 27. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin who earlier on Wednesday arrived at the Vostochny spaceport to watch the first rocket launch has decided to stay there until the prospects of the launch scheduled for April 28 are clarified, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"The president has decided to remain at the cosmodrome until the moment when the prospect of carrying out the launch in 24 hours is clarified," Peskov said.
The president plans to use this time to hold a detailed discussion and meetings on the issue of the second and third stage of the spaceport’s development and the construction of the town of Tsiolkovsky, he added.
Putin arrived in Blagoveshchensk, the administrative center of the Amur region, on Wednesday morning and later traveled to the spaceport. The Russian leader has been informed about the work of the cosmodrome.
