NOVOSIBIRSK, November 15, 15:44 /ITAR-TASS/. The construction of Vostochny Cosmodrome in Amur Region, Russia’s Far East, will “move the rocket and space industry to the East”, Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said at an international forum Tekhnoprom.
“This is the scale project,” the vice-premier said.
The creation of the first launching pad should be ended till the end of next year, Rogozin said, adding that all facilities built on the cosmodrome “will give us the unique opportunity to boost any loads into outer space”.
Commenting on prospects for developing the Far Eastern region, Rogozin said he had a negative attitude to the term “Far East” itself.
“I’m categorically against the term - Far East. How can you live in Vladivostok and say ‘I live in the Far East’?” the vice-premier said.
“This is not the far east. But this is ours, native East. This is our Pacific Ocean zone. It can be named as the Pacific Ocean region or in a different way. Everything starts by words. In the beginning was the Word,” Rogozin said.
