The new Russian Federal Space Program for 2016-2025 (FKP -2025)
The Russian civil space activities are being planned for long timescales through specially developed programs, which are considered to be of state importance, being approved at the governmental level. Annual budgets to support the development of these space activities are being allocated from the state budget, in accordance with programs in which funding has been secured, or for which concrete plans are in place, for all their corresponding items. Therefore, these programs provide the main definitive documents for planning this type of space activity in Russia currently and provide the legislative grounds for them to proceed, including results to be achieved in planned timescales, and levels of funding to be allocated for the planned works during their implementation periods.
