Press office of President Viktor Yanukovych
The Alcantara Cyclone Space project will become reality soon, President Viktor Yanukovych said in an interview with Brazilian newspaper O Globo. "We have already invested 100 million dollars. And I have no doubt that this project will become reality soon. Our objective is to complete in 2013 all the primary work to launch the rockets," Viktor Yanukovych said.
He noted that according to the schedule of works, the Ukrainian side is pending production of the necessary equipment, and Brazil, for its part, has completed the construction of a port in Alcantara, required for delivery of the equipment from Ukraine.
The President reminded that in 2004, when the project was launched, "a difficult period of low political stability" has started in Ukraine and domestic problems complicated the process of making necessary decisions. "Now, after the elections in both countries, the project will develop quickly. I called President Dilma Rousseff after assuming the office and announced our decision to intensify the work," the President said.
"As it usually happens in such projects, we avoid naming specific dates, but I believe that in 2013 we see a pleasant surprise," Viktor Yanukovych said.
