The Russian authorities are planning to solve the problem of the shortage of workers in the construction of the second stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome in the near future. This was announced on Wednesday, March 24, by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Marat Khusnullin.

"There are not enough people yet. We agreed that the number of people will be increased, " he said during a working visit to the Amur region.

Khusnullin noted that the reason for the" personnel shortage " was the restrictive measures introduced against the background of the coronavirus pandemic. He also added that currently about 600 people are quarantined in Blagoveshchensk.

In addition, the Deputy Prime Minister did not see the point in creating a special single customer to complete the construction of the cosmodrome.

"According to the law, a single customer is engaged only in civil objects, so he can not do this. I don't see any point in creating a single customer yet. I believe that we can find all the solutions that will allow us to complete the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome, " he stressed.

In turn, the general director of the state corporation "Roscosmos" Dmitry Rogozin told reporters that the final decision on the mechanism for the construction of the third stage of the Vostochny cosmodrome should be made in the coming weeks. In addition, he expressed hope for the support of the federal government.

Earlier, on March 5, the arbitration court of the Amur Region suspended the construction of the launch complex for the Angara launch vehicle at the Vostochny cosmodrome for 90 days. At the same time, the press service of the production and construction organization "Kazan" reported on the continuation of the construction of the launch table for "Angara" and on the planned appeal of the court decision.

At the end of December 2020, the head of Roscosmos expressed the hope that the Vostochny cosmodrome will be fully operational in 2021.

In January 2019, it was reported that the completion date for the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome was postponed due to difficulties with the selection of the main contractor. Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to ensure the availability of a launch complex for a super-heavy class of missiles no later than 2023 and stressed that "it is impossible to go beyond 2023".
