Vostochny Cosmodrome too small for Soyuz-2 rocket

Work at  Russia’s new $3bn Far Eastern Vostochny Cosmodrome has ground to a halt after a critical piece of  infrastructure was discovered to have been built to  the wrong dimensions and  is  too small to accommodate the  latest version of  the country’s Soyuz rocket, it was being reported last week.
The new spaceport in  Amur is due to replace the Soviet-era Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan as Russia’s primary spaceport, and was scheduled to be ready to launch the Soyuz-2 rocket by December, but the Meduza website is reporting that  an unidentified source within  space agency told the TASS news agency that the rocket would not fit inside the  assembly building where its parts are to be stacked and  tested before launch.The  building “has been designed for  a different modification of the Soyuz rocket,” the  source said, 
The  problems with the  testing and  assembly building are the  latest in a long line of corruption scandals, embezzlement cases, high-profile arrests, worker strikes, and  construction delays that have plagued the project and prompted Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin threatening to ‘rip the  heads off’ any contractors that slowed up its construction.
