Those suspected of violating technological requirements which caused a Proton-M rocket to crash recently will undergo polygraph tests according to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in a statement issued on his Twitter microblog.

He also said that the government is waiting for the final report from Roscosmos on the Proton-M with three Glonass-M satellites that crashed shortly after it was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on July 2.

The accident occurred due to the improper installation of three of the six sensors that help control the positioning of the rocket the Deputy Head of the Russian Federal Space Agency Alexander Lopatin stated earlier.
