National Space Agency's chief said that most probably Kazakhstan would take upon itself all the costs associated with modernization of Zenit launching complex in order to replace Proton booster.
Zenit-M rocket launching complex will become a Kazakhstan property on January 1, 2015, effectively ending Russian lease.
Kazakhstan and Russia agreed to use Zenit launcher in Baiterek (SRC) space rocket complex.
Talgat Mussabayev from Kazakh National Space Agency spoke about Russia's profit from Baikonur. Kazakhstan needs ways to continue the cosmodromes operations in case Russia moves away to its own space centers.
