“The Progress production site contains several thousand pieces of equipment, including foreign-made ones. The equipment was purchased at different times for the implementation of various projects for the creation of space technology. Many machines have been modernized,” said Baranov.

“The production of launch vehicles and remote sensing spacecraft is not dependent on the US and European countries,” said Baranov.

After the introduction of US and EU sanctions against Russian space enterprises, the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin promised to concentrate the resources released due to the restriction of cooperation on the creation of bilateral and military systems. Among those sanctioned was Samara RCC Progress, the manufacturer of Soyuz rockets, which are also used for launch to the ISS.
