Dear colleagues,

 The New Year celebrations is an important landmark separating the year that is passing into history from the future achievements. In order to make all the plans come true, we need to have a clear idea of the tasks that will have to carry out in the coming year of 2020!

One of the major tasks for the Energia team as far as the manned program is concerned remains further development of the Russian Segment of the ISS. In the coming year we are going to carry out two launches of manned spacecraft Soyuz and three launches of cargo spacecraft Progress, as well as do work on preparing for launch to the ISS the Multi-purpose Laboratory Module Nauka, the Node Module Prichal and the Science and Power Module. The task o no less importance is the work to develop the advanced manned spacecraft, which is to be launched in 2023 onboard launch vehicle Angara-A5.

After a five-year gap, we continue to develop the line of high-capacity upper stages for launching spacecraft on LV Proton-M from the Baikonur launch site and LV and LV Angara-A5 from Plesetsk and Vostochny launch sites.

We should pay special attention to the development of robotic space systems for communications and Earth remote sensing.

It should be noted that after a long gap RSC Energia came back into the field of developing new space rocket systems. Together with our subcontractors we are to develop a semi-heavy space rocket system Soyuz-5 by 2023 for launches from the Baikonur launch site, as well as a superheavy space rocket system by 2028 for launch from Vostochny launch site, which will become the foundation for the lunar program.

Im confident that the Energia team is capable of carrying out the most complex space projects! Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to all of you!

I wish you in the New Year an undying interest in your work and endurance on the road to our goals. Health, happiness, success in creative work and prosperity to you and your near and dear ones!

We should always remember the main principle of our organization: transform the energy of thought into the energy of action!
