The head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos will pay a working visit to Crimea, which became a part of Russia in March, to study the region's space industry infrastructure and the role it might play in Russia's space programs.

Roscosmos head Oleg Ostapenko earlier said that the space agency is currently compiling a list of facilities in Crimea that could be useful for Russia's space programs.

The Russian space chief earlier described the region's Soviet-era space infrastructure as operational." Crimea houses a Soviet system of deep space communications and a planetary radar, built in 1960.

It was earlier announced that the facility may be used as a ground station for Russia's GLONASS satellite navigation system.
