A group of Russian students on Monday began an unconventional summer vacation laboring to help finish a much-delayed and corruption-riddled cosmodrome construction project in Russia’s Far East.
The opening ceremony for the student’s summer of construction work took place Monday, the Amur regional government said in a statement.
More than 1,000 students will join the construction effort, adding to the more than 8,000 builders already on site, the statement said. About 130 students have already joined the builders, it said.
