"Angara can be used for manned programs if such a task is set and the funding is allocated," Komarov said on the sidelines of the MAKS-2017 air show.
According to Komarov, Roscosmos has blueprints on creating a universal rocket out of Angara.
"We have understanding about dual purpose use of Angara at the Vostochny [spaceport]," Komarov added.
However, later, it was decided the new Soyuz-5 launch vehicle will deliver the Federation craft to orbit, with the first Soyuz-5 launch expected in 2022.
The Angara family of space-launch vehicles is designed to provide lifting capabilities of between 2 and 40.5 metric tonnes into low Earth orbit. It has been in development since 1995 and was the first orbit-capable rocket developed by Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union to replace the older Proton-M rockets.
