Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) plans to coordinate international sapce activities with other national space agencies, such as the European Space Agency. In 2011, Roskosmos announced plans to promote Russian launch services to other countries.
Many companies within Russia already work in the foreign market space. International Space Services, which is owned by Ural Mining Company, sells Zenit-operated launches from Baikonur. Baikonur, formerly known as Leninsk, is a city in Kyzylorda Province of Kazakhstan that is rented and administered by the Russian Federation.
