It was reported earlier that the ministry had approved the modified draft space program for 2006-2015. Roskosmos official spokesman Vyacheslav Davidenko said: "The economic development ministry and Roskosmos are seeking to increase the program financing by 30%." Perminov also said that "this sum was required to complete the Russian segments of the International Space Station and launch 26 new Russian satellites."
