Today, July 17, State Corporation Roscosmos singed a government contract with RSC Energia for the development of the new-generation medium Space Rocket System (SRS) with Launch Vehicle (LV) Soyuz-5.

The document was signed in the presence of the general director of Roscosmos Dmitri Rogozin in the Space and Aviation pavilion at VDNKh by acting first deputy general director of State Corporation Roscosmos Nikolai Sevasianov and acting general director of RSC Energia Sergei Romanov.
