"For the first time in the history of cosmonautics, the device will land in difficult conditions in the vicinity of the South Pole of the Moon," the corporation noted.

Now, at the test bench of the onboard control complex, statistical modeling of the key stage of the mission - a soft landing on the surface of the Moon - is being completed.

As the domestic experience and the experience of other countries that landed on the surface of the Moon shows, this stage is critical for the success of the entire mission as a whole, given the complexity of the tasks of ballistics and navigation support for the flight.

To achieve the reliability of the mission, it is necessary to carry out additional measures that will ensure the stable operation of ground-based controls at the stages of correction and landing on the surface, Roscosmos emphasized
