In this paper we describe the first Russian spaceborne single frequency aerosol lidar. This lidar was especially designed for studying the cloud formations and the Earth's surface from space and it is planned now that it will be installed onboard the `Spektr' modulus of the orbiting Russian station `Mir'. The construction of the lidar consists of a transmitter-receiver, electronic system of data acquisition and transmission, and the control keyboard. This lidar has undergone the full cycle of ground tests as a part of the whole modulus `Spektr' and now it is ready for launch.
