MOSCOW, September 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) is planning to resume cosmonauts' training sessions in Sevastopol, a Roscosmos press service official told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
The press service official pointed out, "Sevastopol may soon become a space training center again. Cosmonauts' training sessions will, possibly, resume in the water area of the main base of the Black Sea Fleet."
Yuri Lonchakov, Head of the Cosmonauts' Training Center, said previously that there were plans to hold survival training sessions in Crimea for cosmonauts. "We are also planning, if it works out, to hold sea and mountain survival training," he said. It is also planned to revive a cosmonauts' post-flight rehabilitation center near Yevpatoria, Lonchankov added.
Besides, Roscosmos has assumed patronage over Sevastopol-based School 54 named after Yuri Gagarin. Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, who was born in that city, has set up an Alley of Cosmonauts in the school grounds.
