In his words, quoted by “Interfax”, even the most ambitious Russian space projects include increased productivity in the industry only half, but “because we (the USA — ed) never catch up,” concluded Deputy Prime Minister.

As measures of effectiveness he was offered a fight against bureaucracy and another increase in performance. Otherwise, “we will look at NASA and Elon musk”.

Read about the reprimand Rogozin for “East”.

Recall that a private company Mask SpaseX, established in 2002, now offers the lowest prices on space launches, and recently worked with the landing of the first stage booster on a floating platform.

While in Russia the participation of private companies in the development of space technologies very difficult: thus, the creation of a satellite can cost up to 10 times cheaper than receiving all necessary documentation.

Also, the Russian government finds it impossible to give up space launches to private corporations in connection with international obligations of Russia.
