The Russian rocket put into orbit three satellites — the satellite of Moscow state University "Lomonosov" and two Samara apparatus SamSat-218 and AIST-2D".
After the successful launch of the first rocket from the East Vladimir Putin congratulated the builders of the cosmodrome and of the representatives of the Corporation "Roscosmos", RIA "Novosti".
"There is something to be proud of. Yesterday technique went a little overboard, in principle, it was possible to start up yesterday, but the technique is overdone and stopped start. This is a normal phenomenon," the President said to the audience at the launch site.
According to him, the important thing is that the site is well prepared and functioning. Putin noted that work is still a lot, including preparing the site for the launch of heavy missiles, but have already made "significant step in the development of Russian cosmonautics".
As reported, the first launch of the carrier rocket from the East was scheduled for April 27, but postponed for a day due to a failure of the automatic system.
The next launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome will take place in a year, the third launch will also be held in 2017. Roscosmos expects that in 2018 with the East will be from six to eight launches.
