The specialists informed him that the construction is under way 24 hours a day, and by the end of the year the number of workers will be increased from 8500 to 10000 people, says Amur-info.

Besides all the main cosmodrome sites are planned to be plugged in heating till the 10th of October to conduct fit-out works and assemble the equipment. By new year all the facilities should be set.
