    Why would humans go inside?

    It is just access to the lower area via a set of stairs... they could just as easily have been external stairs.

    The point is that there would be no one in there at launch time or for quite a long period afterwards... plenty of time for fumes to disperse.

    In fact if the door was blown open from the low pressure of exhaust gases blowing past then there should in fact be very little gas entering the internal area... the door wasn't sucked open it was blown open by the higher pressure air inside the stair well... which means as the pressure returns to normal only a small amount of air would enter the structure to replace that which was blown out.

    Roscosmos Expects Construction of Vostochny Cosmodrome to Be Completed in 2016

    The Russian space agency expects that the construction of the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Far East will be completed by 2017. MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian space agency Roscosmos expects the construction of the Vostochny Cosmodrome to be completed by the end of 2016, Roscosmos General Director Igor Komarov said Friday. "We must solve all remaining issues in the nearest future to accelerate the completion of construction and finish it by year-end," Komarov told Rossiya-24. Vostochny, which has been under construction since 2012, is expected to reduce Russia's dependency on the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan. Baikonur is on lease to Russia until 2050. In April, Russia successfully conducted the first launch from the newly-built Vostochny space center, putting three satellites aboard a Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket to orbit.
