Russia will start building an unmanned base on the Moon after 2025, as a hit of a big Russia's lunar program.

      The program was presented at the Moscow International Aerospace Show. It is based on a concept of the Russian aerospace industry development until 2030 and later.

      According to the Russian lunar program, Russia and India will launch the Luna-Resurs probe in 2014. Russian spacecraft is expected to land on the Earth satellite to support the work of an Indian-made mini-rover and an Indian-made orbiter.

      The second lunar mission, Luna Glob, is planned to begin in 2015 with Russian rover to make researches on the lunar pole.

      Next two missions, Luna-Resurs-2 and Luna-Grunt, are planned to be conducted after 2017 with collecting lunar samples and sending it to the Earth.

      The deployment of an automatic lunar base will begin after 2025, Russian Federal Space Agency believes.
