Roskosmos reduces dependence on foreign-made components


(05 Apr 2021) Russian rockets are produced using Russian-made components to almost 100%, Roskosmos spokesman Vladimir Ustimenko said in an interview.

"There are certain restrictions on acquisition of … technical capabilities, especially electronics. Previously, we used to buy this [sic] electronics abroad, but now we switch to import replacement, and rather successfully, too, because Russian rockets are now produced from domestic components to almost 100%," Ustimenko said.

He noted that components for satellites are also being produced domestically, with the exception of joint projects.

Previously, Roskosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin reported to President Vladimir Putin that complete replacement of imported electronics for GLONASS satellites will be achieved by 2025.
