So the Russian astronaut Nikolay Ovchinin before the emergency landing of "Union" told.

It is known that accident happened in operating time of the second step. According to preliminary information, it switched-off engines.

Accident of "Union" is at least loss of 100 million dollars. Market price of a rocket of "Union" — 50 million dollars, and the ship costs about the same, experts say. But it not all. Flights will suspend now until causes of accident become clear.

The shift of starts on time, even without any accidents, is, in general, a usual thing. — And force majeurs similar register in contracts? — How? Accident is always provided. But there any sanctions, any penalties are not provided. All this is considered at an insurance of starts. In general, there rather difficult contract, with many conditions, and all of them are rather different. This start was insured for 4,6 billion rubles.
