ASTANA, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Kazakhstan has yet to receive Russia's response over the value of damage it estimates was caused by the failed launch of a Proton-M rocket at Baikonur cosmodrome last July, Kazakhstan’s Minister of Environment and Water Resources Nurlan Kapparov told journalists on Thursday.
“We await a response from the Russian side,” Kapparov said, adding that Kazakhstan had contacted Russia's Federal Space Agency, Roskosmos, occasionally, which had brought “constructive dialogue”. Russia “promises an official response soon but set no precise dates”, the minister added.
Kazakhstan estimates environmental damage at 13.69 billion tenge (about $2,121 billion) and has referred the figures to Roskosmos.
The rocket crashed upon launch. It was carrying three satellites for the GLONASS global navigation system.
