SOCHI, November 15. /TASS/. The timeline for manned flights from the Vostochny Space Center in Russia's Far East will be specified later on Tuesday, President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting on development strategy for the Russian federal space corporation Roscosmos.
"We'll come to a decision on the timeline for the launches of manned spacecraft from Vostochny," he said.
"It's important to speed up construction of Stage Two of the center at once."
It is necessary to pay special attention to the development of prospective spacecraft needed for further space exploration, Putin added.
"Serious attention should be paid to the development of prospective spacecraft and launch vehicles. They are necessary for further space exploration, for the implementation of manned space program," the president said.
Putin added that the Russian segment of the ISS should bring better output (than now).
