“Experts from Roskosmos and the Russian Defense Ministry, under their
leadership’s instructions have analyzed the possibility and expediency
of the continuation of the Dnepr project. Their findings were handed to
the Ukrainian side and the Kosmotras Company in early September,” the
official said.

He noted that in the case of the Dnepr rockets the major problem was
financial. “Up to now, Kosmotras has been paid for the launch of a
rocket a trifle – a few million rubles, while the cost of one launch was
about 80 times higher. The difference was covered from the Russian
budget,” he said.

“The Ukrainian side has been offered new, but still, preferential
conditions to start to pay an amount close to the cost [of a launch].
It’s up to them to decide,” the source said.
