Energia President Lopota offered office as vice president at United Rocket and Space Corporation
MOSCOW. Aug 2 (Interfax) - Russian United Rocket and Space Corporation (URSC) President Igor Komarov has proposed that Vitaly Lopota, the president and general designer of the Energia space rocket corporation, become his deputy for technological development.
"Vitaly Alexandrovich [Lopota] has been invited to work at the URSC as a vice president for technological development," the URSC quoted Komarov as saying in a statement.
Lopota has headed the Energia corporation for seven years, Komarov said. "A number of serious projects have been implemented over this time, and some of them have become real breakthroughs," he said.
Komarov pointed out that, as Lopota has been offered the office of URSC vice president for technological development, combining this job with the office of Energia president would be inappropriate.
The URSC said the Energia board of directors met on August 1 and elected Komarov the board chairman. The board also decided to suspend Lopota's credentials as the Energia president and general designer.
"NPO Energomash Executive Director Vladimir Solntsev has been appointed as the temporary sole executive body (president) of the Energia space rocket corporation," URSC spokesman Igor Burenkov said.
