"The Russian side has prepared and submitted to the Kazakh side of the materials to select the places of possible placement of the complex, as well as the cost parameters of creation of space rocket complex," he said at a meeting of the Russian-Kazakh intergovernmental Council for the " Baikonur "complex.
according to him, Russia "is from those realities that have developed in the actual destruction of the Ukrainian rocket-space industry on manufacture of rockets "Zenit" (previously expected to use these rockets for launches from complex) ".
"Today we must find the optimal solution, lest there be any doubt as to the realization of the idea to create complex "Baiterek" on the basis of other launch vehicles, which today has the Russian side, " - said Rogozin.
As explained the Deputy Minister, Experts of the Russian Federation and Kazakhstan, working during mutual group, will present to the Commission options for addressing this issue.

Space rocket complex "Baiterek" - launched in 2004, the project of Kazakhstan and Russia on creation at Baikonur patterns for launches environmentally-friendly launch vehicles. It is planned that in case of its realization will be possible to abandon the carrier rockets " proton ", using toxic propellants.
from the outset it was expected the use of new rocket " Angara ". But later, due to the increased cost of delaying the project for several years and the decision on the launch vehicle "Angara" from the cosmodrome " East ", the project was refocused on the use of the rocket "Zenit" Ukrainian production. Due to the unstable political situation in Ukraine in the summer of 2014 the project was again suspended. Now the investigation of implementation options on the basis of Russian launch vehicles, and the most appropriate option once again became a " Hangar ".
