PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, January 26, 15:54 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia should “learn to earn money from investment that we had made in development of space industry,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with weekly programme Segodnya (Today) on NTV TV channel on Sunday.
“The question is not to hurry to implement some absolutely unique projects, most important for us today is to make our space as most pragmatic as possible,” he said. “We can launch spaceships and create global navigation satellite system GLONASS , which operates and operates perfectly well, as 24 satellites are on combat duty, another four satellites are on orbital standby, but we fail to take profit from this,” he said, noting that the United States receives much more money from its GPS system and it is profit-making. “It happens in our country that we have a navigation satellite system, have a grouping of satellites, but we lack their master and cannot use this navigation signal properly,” he said. “Moreover, GLONASS modules are not created in Russia, China produces them and earns money on this,” the deputy prime minister added.
“Therefore, it is routine and very hard work to bring everyone together, find solutions, find these new technologies, find economic solutions from which everything should be pragmatic. So, I call for our aerospace industry to bring real roubles - billions, trillions of roubles in profit and so that state authorities, including the government, would learn to organise a market of these space services,” Dmitry Rogozin said in conclusion.
