YEKATERINBURG, May 19. /TASS/. Andrey Misyura has been appointed the new CEO of NPO Automatics, the company responsible for a cable that malfunctioned during the first rocket launch from Russia's Vostochny spaceport last month.
The decision was announced at the meeting of the company’s board of directors on Thursday. Misyura formerly served as minister of industry and science of Russia’s Urals Sverdlovsk region and had worked at the space enterprise for more than 10 years.
The former head of the company, Leonid Shalimov, tendered resignation due to the delayed first launch of the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket from the newly-built Vostochny spaceport, in the Far East, on April 27. The glitch was caused by a malfunction of a cable manufactured by the company. The blastoff took place a day later - on April 28.
