Except that it looks like another vanity project like the Sochi winter Olympics...

Well,

   this means Russia has succeeded in its political & economic intentions.

   Political: it is founding a town of another 25 000 permanent residents & its cosmodrome, to deter anyone in China from reviving talk of the Unequal Treaties & return of the Trans-Amur territories. We can also expect probably annual visits by Russia's president or prime minister to Vladivostok in future.

  Economic: never again can the Kazakh Government raise the rent on Baikonyur when the current arrangements expire. They can only hope they won't be left single-handed in maintaining the world's biggest cosmodrome.

- Keith.

After a delay from the day previous, the first Soyuz rocket launch from Vostochny just happened.  It appears to be well on its way to a successful orbital insertion.



Information via Twitter tweet feeds I am getting.  This also includes Antaoly Zak's tweets as well.
