You've probably noticed interview of Igor Komarov about the Federal Space Programme 2016-2025 published on the Roskosmos' web page.
Mr Komarov mentioned that the Sea Launch cosmodrome has been sold. The new owner and details will be published before end of April.

After problems with the Ukrainian Zenith rocket and issues between RKK "Energiya" and Boeing it was matter of time when Russia would sell the Sea Launch.
Idea to develop Angara A3 rocket for Sea Launch was one of options explored mostly in relation to the joint initiatives around the Brazilian Ancantara project.
The new investor may be from the US, Europe, China or, which is from my perspective very interesting - Australia!
For prolonged time an investor from the UEA was also in the game.

Considering issues around the Zenith rocket, complex ownership structure between three countries, uncertainty around medium- to long-term launch market for the Zenith type of payloads and massive reduction of Roskosmos' 10-year budget this decision was expectable.
