ST. PETERSBURG, June 3. /TASS/. Roscosmos took the Buran spacecraft at the Baikonur cosmodrome facility under round-the-clock security. This was announced on Thursday by the head of the state corporation Dmitry Rogozin at SPIEF-2021.

Earlier, one of the users of the social network Instagram posted photos showing a painted "Buran". The space shuttle was covered in graffiti. Later, Roscosmos confirmed that a group of unknown persons had entered the object of the Baikonur cosmodrome, where the second Buran flight vehicle and a mock-up of a rocket-plane ship are located, and said that the inscriptions had already been painted over.

"We put up round-the-clock security there. I think such incidents will not happen, " Rogozin said.

According to him, the unfinished spacecraft and its layout "somehow ended up in the hands of a private citizen of Kazakhstan". This fact is being investigated.

Rogozin said that a trial is underway between Kazakhstan and this private individual, it will take about three months. After that, the future fate of the "Buran"will be decided.

Buran is a Soviet reusable spacecraft. On November 15, 1988, it was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome (now Kazakhstan) using an Energia launch vehicle, made two orbits around the Earth and landed on the territory of the cosmodrome. The flight took place without a crew, its duration was 205 minutes. The sample, which has been in space, was destroyed due to the collapse of the roof of the assembly and test building at Baikonur in 2002.

Цитата, q
По его словам, недостроенный космический корабль и его макет "в свое время каким-то образом оказались в руках частного гражданина Казахстана".
Никогда такого не было, а тут вдруг.
