The Vostochny (Eastern) cosmodrome will be built near Uglegorsk, where the Svobodny military cosmodrome was located. Five satellites had been launched from Svobodny. The launch pad was created 11 years ago, for the missile regiment which was deployed in the Amur region. The last launch at Svobodny took place in April 2006, when a Start-1 booster lofted Israel's Eros-1B satellite into Earth orbit. In February 2007, the country's leadership decided to close the cosmodrome.
