Roscosmos Requests Glonass Project Contractor Head’s Dismissal
KOROLEV, Russia — Russia’s Federal Space Agency has initiated the dismissal of Yuri Urlichich, who headed a Glonass project contractor, the space agency’s head Vladimir Popovkin said on Monday.
Urlichich lost his post of the scandal-hit project’s chief designer on November 11.
"We have sent documents to the Economic Development Ministry, requesting to relieve Urlichich of his duties in the Russian Space Systems. I think all the decisions will be made this week,” Popovkin said.
