MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia remains the global leader in the number of space launches, Head of Russia’s Space Agency Oleg Ostapenko told the Federation Council on Thursday.
“Having cut in 2012-2013 its own launch programs, Russia still remained the world’s leader in launches,” he said. “The leading pad is, like it was in the past, the Baikonur cosmodrome.”
“The Russian Federation observes fully its obligations on the transport services for the International Space Station by Russian Soyuz and Progress-M piloted spaceships,” Ostapenko said.
