Moscow, Russia (Sputnik) Jan 23, 2015
Introducing the new head of Russia's Federal Space Agency Roscosmos, Rogozin, who oversees Russia's defense and space industries, said that the creation of the Roscosmos state corporation would help developing this cooperation.
Igor Komarov was appointed Wednesday the head of Roscosmos until the establishment of the corporation on the basis of the current federal agency and the United Rocket and Space Corporation.
The new reforms are being introduced in response to Russian launch vehicle failures, as well as to streamline joint state-business efforts to fight alleged widespread corruption that reportedly has affected a number of key space programs.
