Russia will develop a special program to expand commercial space services and push the United States and EU out of that market, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Friday.
Russia needs to expand its presence on the space market.
Russia today is a leading provider of space launch services in the world but that only accounts for three percent of the world’s space market.
“Everything else is dominated by the Americans and Europeans,” he said.
The Russian Federal Space Agency, Roscosmos, is to draw up a long-term space program, a “stage-by-stage roadmap for decades ahead,” Rogozin said.
