Comment: Baikonur - Kazakhstan vs. Russia (Score 2, Informative) 237

by ChemE (#21068045) Attached to: The Story of Baikonur, Russia's Space City
One thing not mentioned in the article (but is mentioned in the 2005 article) is the problems between the Kazakh and Russian governments.They are still debating over problems (especially money) due to failed rocket launches, most recently in September. The Kazakh government keeps suspending and then unsuspending Russian operations at the base.

See this article from EurasiaNet: http://eurasianet.org/resource/kazakhstan/hypermail/news/0011.shtml

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
