He wants to drown Energomash in engine orders.

Energomash + Voronezh has always been a monopolist in the kerolox department. What's new?

For some reason I thought that RD-107 and 108 were made in Samara.

Rogozin tells that the maiden crewed flight of PTKNP will happen in 2025. This will be the second (instance? specimen? copy?) of the ship.

In 2023 they will launch the first ship, uncrewed, on Angara-A5P.
Later this copy (why "copy"? it's the original!) will fly again on the super-heavy super-rocket.
It is named "Орёл" / "Eagle". And according to the spoken, this is the name of this particular PTKNP copy, not a name of PTKNP in whole.
It is a simplified test version of the ship.

The second copy will be a full-featured ship will fly first time in 2024 uncrewed, then in 2025 crewed.
Its lifespan is 10 flights.

In 2026 and 2027 it will be lifted by Angara rockets.
In 2028 the flight tests will get over, and it will be used with the future superr-heavy rocket.

He didn't reveal the name of the second ship copy, and will say it later.

P.S.
The second copy name... Bet on Goto Predestinatsiya.

Technically we haven't had a Soyuz 1 launch vehicle. We've had Soyuz and Soyuz 2, but not Soyuz 1.

They should ensure that it was not an AI space mutiny, and the Fedor wasn't trying to hijack the ship instead of docking.

Roscosmos has dropped a sizeable RFP for a variety of engine development research.

The media focused on the rotary plasma thruster for a nuclear-powered tug, but there's a lot more in those 84 pages.

I'm pretty sure this is the last one but I'm not sure.

The newest one is Soyuz-2.1a.

2.1b is for unmanned launches only.
