84 bln roubles have been spent at this point on the work at the construction sites of Vostochny Cosmodrome.

This is what the vice prime minister of Russia in charge of the defense industry, Dmitry Rogozin, said on Friday following a meeting in Moscow with the President, Vladimir Putin.

Rogozin has also promised to finalize staff turnover at this landmark construction, due to the delay of the first launch from Vostochny Cosmodrome. Meanwhile, he pledged that that decision would be of no concern to experienced specialists.

Dmitry Rogozin stressed that he evaluated the Cosmodrome construction work as excellent and that this was what he reported to President Putin.

According to the information available to the Life TV channel, during the meeting, Vladimir Putin rebuked Mr Rogozin for his appearance, after the latter had arrived with a loose tie.
