Roscosmos: Int'l Space Cooperation Strongest in Times of Political Crises
MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia offers its international partners to jointly create a new super-heavy-lift launch vehicle, the deputy head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said Tuesday.

"The work on establishing the following means of the development of outer space — a joint creation of a super-heavy launch vehicle – may be organized within the framework of the international cooperation. We propose to our partners to create [the carrier rocket] together," Sergei Saveliev told reporters.

In April 2015, the Russian space agency abandoned plans to develop a super-heavy space launch vehicle after re-allocating funds and focusing on modifying a heavy Angara-A5 rocket to lift super-heavy loads.

In late March, Roscosomos announced that Russia would show the design of a super-heavy space launch vehicle before the end of 2016.
