“In August, we planned a meeting with Mr. Rogozin on the whole topic of Baikonur,” RIA Novosti quotes him.

In December 2021, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that Russia and Kazakhstan needed new projects at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin later announced the construction of the Baiterek space rocket complex in 2022.
