    Even though Zak is an Atlanticist twerp, the information below is based on official sources:

    http://www.russianspaceweb.com/vostochny_angara.html

    On January 20, 2016, Roskosmos officials admitted that budget cuts at the end of 2015 had required to drop plans to build one of the two launch pads for Angara rockets in Vostochny. Previously, the Russian space officials claimed that a dual launch complex for the Angara was absolutely necessary to support the four-launch scenario of the lunar expeditions relying on the Angara-5V rocket.

    The beginning of the construction of the remaining single pad was now delayed from 2016 to 2017. The facility could still be designed to accomodate multiple members of the Angara family, including Angara-5 and Angara-5V and, eventually, their man-rated versions.

    To save money, the Amur project, which aimed to bring the Angara family to Vostochny, was subdivided into two phases. Only the first phase, which funded the deployment of the Angara-5/KVTK and Angara-5P rockets at the site, would reach flight tests in 2021, during the Federal Space Program extending from 2016 to 2025. The completion of the second phase, which would see the first unmanned launch of the Angara-5V rocket from Vostochny, was now postponed from 2024 to beyond 2025.

    So there will be an Angara launch pad at Vostochny by 2021. There would have been two if not for budget cuts. But
    even one is good enough. They already have one at Plesetsk. I don't see the urgency for three Angara launch pads.

    I must say that Vostochny is looking very nice now.  Its clearly a few billion that has been VERY well spent.  The Western MSM is still on its small-minded crusade to piss on Russia's parade however, and with just about every MSM article on the impending launch, it seems to be par for the course to include the mandatory references to "construction mishaps" and "corruption "... Given that project of this scale was completed on budget and only slipped by ~4 months (over a 5 year period) I'd call the project a resounding success (assuming a successful 1st flight of course).

    Our corrupt pressitute media insists on treating shoddy behavior by the owners of PRIVATE construction sub-contractors (not government agencies) as an excuse to criticise either Putin or his government, especially after Rogozin intervened personally to resolve the problems. The corporate elitist NWO agenda is blatantly obvious...

    Anyhow, I wish them good luck with the 1st launch!

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Communication have been established with all three satellites that were put into orbit after the first launch from Russia’s Vostochny Cosmodrome earlier on Thursday, the Roscosmos press service said.

    “The space vehicles [satellites] separated on schedule at 7:07 a.m. Moscow time [04:07 GMT] and their scheduled separation was confirmed during a communications séance at 8:05 [05:05 GMT],” the press service said.
