Congratulations to Roscosmos staff

July 12, 2018

Vladimir Putin congratulated the staff of Roscosmos State Corporation on a major event for the Russian space and rocket industry and the entire country.

The message reads, in part:

“On July 10, a Progress MS-09 cargo spacecraft carrying scientific equipment, fuel, medicine and food was launched from the Baikonur Space Launch Centre, reached and docked with the International Space Station in record time.

This brilliant success, marking a real breakthrough that makes Russian space exploration significantly more competitive, is the result of the hard work and creativity of all the project’s participants, their consummate professionalism and skill, as well as the advanced technology and innovations they employed. And, of course, the great ideas of the industry’s founders and the impressive achievements of your predecessors are the foundation on which your success is built.”
