"The money is good there": Putin offered Belarus to complete the Vostochny cosmodrome

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko announced Putin's proposal to complete the Vostochny cosmodrome by sending construction teams from Belarus there.

We are planning to build the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur Region. There used to be a lot of talk about theft and the facility was not built. Now President Putin said: take this object, there is good money. I think we will transfer several trusts there from the Belarusian nuclear power plant - Belarus has retained large construction organizations. I am currently negotiating about it

- Lukashenko said in an interview with Russian media.

In November last year, Vladimir Putin spoke about the prevention of inappropriate spending in the implementation of national projects. His press secretary Dmitry Peskov later clarified that 91 billion rubles were allocated for the work on the cosmodrome, of which only 66 billion were spent. Of the nineteen facilities, the construction of five has not been completed.

The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation is investigating 19 criminal cases on embezzlement of funds during the construction of the cosmodrome, 42 cases were sent to the courts. According to the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin, the unfinished facilities at Vostochny will be commissioned next year.

      The "galley" got there. There are no longer any people left in Russia in top positions and in the management of large companies who can be trusted. He is really ignored by all and sundry and steal as if not into himself. We have to invite the Vikings in order to somehow finish this long-suffering object.

    This is Vladimir Putin's masterful and fraternal approach to the problem of the "Vostochny" - disciplined and very conscientious Belarusians will complete the construction on time and with proper quality!
    Although in Belarus there are adapted "effective" crooks in leadership positions who, using the "roof in Minsk" and spreading nepotism in their institution, for years manage to cheat with budget funds with impunity, even under the "watchful eye" of the competent authorities, alas, this sad "organ flaw" happens! request
    So, accounting and control should be in any responsible business, and especially in the state one, and it is necessary to ask for the task entrusted without any discounts "for brotherhood"! yes

      No one has yet been able to completely eradicate such phenomena. No attempts at control, no repression, nothing helps. Apparently, humanity is incorrigible.
      By the way, those very "disciplined and very conscientious Belarusians" dropped the rector, then scandalized and the reactor was replaced. winked
      In general, there is no need to wait for fundamental changes at the construction site; it is rather a measure of economic support. People are allowed to earn. Probably not just like that. What in return is still a mystery. hi

    Wah! Where is Belarus and where is Vostochny? Logistics pret.

    But there is a third attempt to complete it.
    By dad, apparently without the Belarusians ("there is good money"), it will not work out, just toss it over with whole trusts ...

    - Ha ... - Personally, about 1,5 years ago, I already submitted an "idea" here on the joint construction of a Russian-Belarusian cosmodrome on the adjacent territory of Russia and Belarus ...
    - Yes, the place is not the best for this; but all the same ... - it was quite possible to decide ... - No earthquakes in this region, tectonic plates in that place ... - are also quite encouraging ...; and the main thing is that the Russian and Belarusian economies would be very closely intertwined and would be welded together "for real" ... - And then you look and ... and ... and to the joint Russian-Belarusian state ... - already a stone's throw ... - Local "smart guys" ... - then showed themselves "in all their glory" ... - there were cons ........
    - But, as it turned out, that I was not so and I was not right ... - And today our guarantor is trying to lure Belarusian specialists with the construction of the cosmodrome ... - True, this cosmodrome is located far away; but today it's even good ... to take away at least some of the active workers from the rebellious Belarus ... - And then ... - well, you can't just give Belarus big money today ... - it's even like- it will look indecent ... - But for the completion of the cosmodrome (or rather, for this whole long-term construction) ... - you can already give ... - And ten thousand Belarusians-builders will become a strong core of supporters of Russia ... - and this is already a lot ...
    - The cosmodrome is already ... and it's not that "the essence is important" ... - the main thing is to captivate the Belarusians ...
