Arianespace and Roscosmos have signed a contract for the supply of seven Russian "Unions" in the $ 400 million

The European company Arianespace has signed a contract with Roscosmos for the supply of seven Russian Soyuz-ST launch vehicles to 2019. The missiles will be used for launches from the Kourou space center in South America. The signing ceremony took place after the successful launch of the European satellite Sentinel-1A, delivered to orbit by a Russian rocket.


Before signing the contract, the head of Roscosmos, Oleg Ostapenko, noted that he does not doubt the successful implementation of all contracts and agreements concluded between the parties, and hopes for increased cooperation, Interfax-AHW reports.

“I am deeply convinced that not only the tasks that we face in launching payloads, but also the tasks of a wider spectrum - space exploration, will be fulfilled. I am grateful for the warmth and attention that was given to our delegation. I am sure that a great future awaits us in mastering the Universe, ”he said.

The head of Roskosmos also expressed gratitude to all the calculations and to the personnel who prepared and launched the Soyuz-ST launch vehicle, by means of which the European satellite Sentinel-1A was put into orbit. "History our work is not very old, but very fruitful, ”said Ostapenko.

According to the source of the news agency, the contract for the supply of seven Russian launch vehicles is estimated at about $ 400 million.

On the night of April 4, the Russian Soyuz-ST with the Fregat-M upper stage launched from the Kourou space center (French Guiana) and launched the European remote sensing satellite Sentinel-1A, which will become part of the global monitoring of natural and man-made phenomena .

      Politics by politics, but money is needed. Business spit on sanctions, as well as on politics. You want to know how to spin money.

      but if it weren’t for the United States, which completely took control of the backstage control over Europe, they would generally be silk and accommodating.

      Only with Germany in Europe we have a turnover of 450 lard euro, and with the United States about 40. So which of them have something to lose?

    The main thing when Europe imposes sanctions is that no one gets hurt. And then they will still be offended, they will hang them themselves - and in real life they will become a "beggar geyropoy".

      So this is the next phase of the contract.

      Medvedev-Sarkozy signed 20 missiles for Kuru.

      7 has already been launched.
      13 at work.

      This year another 3 launch.

        Yes, yes, and about the Mistral, something was signed there and about thermal imagers ... but it can be squeezed, what about the "sanctions", but Russian missiles ... "a necessary thing in the economy," because no sanctions ...

        Today seven were shot from there. So they will arm the Mistral in St. Petersburg in October - they will not go anywhere.

    NASA imposes sanctions, but will fly into space and it immediately becomes clear that Obama has not pressed NASA.
    Euroclowns refused to develop armored trucks for us and immediately buy rockets ... Ward No. 6.

    If, after the next sanctions, such gorgeous contracts are signed, then soon Putin will have to persuade the United States to keep frightening us. Just like in the saying about "roast cock" and "thunder and a man". It seems that Obama is two in one for Russia - a "loud rooster", after his sanctions, God's grace goes directly to Mother Russia.

    Or maybe you should stop working? They sanction us and we give them. Let Europe think about whether or not to trick the United States. And then go on about those like a blind guide. A guide leads to the abyss.

    The news confirms once again that Russia is the world leader in space technology, was it in the days of the USSR and remains to this day!

    A small correction: Russia is one of the world leaders in space technologies. This is one. In its, what is called a niche, there are two. But what Soviet-developed "Unions" buy ... is significant, no? It turns out that Russia is in this field loudly about myself not declared. Right now "patriots" slap minuses. Said what I think.

      Soyuz-ST is no longer exactly a Soviet rocket. But the Americans are flying on our engines, which were stupidly stored for 40 years at the Kuznetsov NGO.

    The European company, it seems very proud, decided to show the Americans that they work for the result and for the benefit of common worldly goals, not selfish, for the sake of one country or to support a universal unreasonably negative opinion against a particular country.

    Everyone needs good rockets. And our rockets are good, like crayfish, yesterday for three rubles, and today for five. So gentlemen, do not crowd, there will be enough missiles for everyone, we can arrange for home delivery right from the warhead.

    Quite good "sanctions"! wassat A B-777 cargo landed here in Krasnoyarsk just now! German. They signed another agreement for cargo transit. For ten years they have been flying, including the DS-11, B-747, A-330, but still good news. WHERE SANCTIONS? SHOULD YOU STILL IN THE STAG? laughing
