ASTANA, May 11. /TASS/. Moscow is planning to continue cooperating with Kazakhstan in the space area, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said at the meeting with Kazakhstan’s Senate Chairman Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on Wednesday.
The Russian senator reminded that recently Russia and Kazakhstan marked two anniversaries that have major importance for the history of both countries and bilateral relations: the Victory Day on May 9 and the 55th anniversary of the first human space flight on April 12.
Matviyenko stressed that Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin lifted off from the Soviet-built Baikonur space complex in Kazakhstan. "Of course, this is our common date and we plan to further continue our cooperation in the area of developing space ties," she said.
Late last month, Russia launched its first rocket from the new Vostochny spaceport in the Far Eastern Amur region. The cosmodrome is destined to become the first national facility for civilian space launches, ensuring Russia’s full-scale access to outer space and reducing the dependence of the Russian space industry on Kazakhstan’s Baikonur space center.
