Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

An inspection team will be set up to check the production of Proton-M rockets in the light of the latest accident at the Baikonur Space Center, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said.

"We are forming an engineering inspection team of specialists from space industry enterprises other than the Khrunichev Center who have nothing to do with the accident. They will check the entire technological process and rocket construction operations at the plant," Rogozin told the Ekho Moskvy radio.

A Proton-M rocket, which blasted off from Baikonur on July 2 was due to put three Glonass-M navigation satellites into orbit.

It fell down and exploded near the launch site during the first minute of the mission.
