President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday oversaw the successful test-launch of Russia’s newest heavy-class Angara rocket. The president oversaw by video link the launch of the Angara-A5, which is designed for civilian and military use, from Plesetsk in northern Russia, saying the new rocket would allow the country better protection. “Russia remains one of the internationally recognized leaders in space exploration,” Putin said from the Kremlin.
