Can someone help me understand this? Looks like they are paying International Launch Services (ILS) to support this launch?

$931,200

http://www.zakupki.gov.ru/223/purchase/public/purchase/info/documents.html?purchaseId=931019&&purchaseMethodType=ep

There are four documents; these two appear relevant:-
