Russia Speeds Up Work on Angara Rocket Base

RIA Novosti said:

MOSCOW, December 11 (RIA Novosti) – Construction of a launchpad in northern Russia for the long-delayed Angara rocket will be completed ahead of previous estimates, the country's defense minister has said.

“We have implemented a monitoring system and reduced the construction backlog of the Angara launch facility at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome by three to six months,” Sergei Shoigu said.
