A State Corporation called ROSCOSMOS was founded in August 2015 to supervise and carry out a thorough overhaul of the Russian space sector. The Russian Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) is responsible for overseeing the legal compliance of the country’s space program. ROSCOSMOS also places orders for the creation, production, and delivery of space infrastructure and equipment.

In addition, the state corporation is in charge of fostering international collaboration in space and laying the groundwork for future applications of space activity outcomes to Russia’s social and economic advancement. On July 15, the same day that Roscosmos and NASA inked a highly anticipated agreement to swap seats on missions to the International Space Station, the Russian government fired Dmitry Rogozin as the organization’s director.

The Kremlin declared in a brief statement that Rogozin had been fired as Roscosmos’ director, effective immediately, by Vladimir Putin, the country’s president. Yuri Borisov, Russia’s deputy prime minister, has been named Rogozin’s replacement at Roscosmos, according to a separate statement from the Kremlin.

The dismissal of Rogozin was not explained in the announcement, but it might not have been because of complaints about how he ran the space agency. Independent Russian news outlet Meduza claimed on 13th July that the Kremlin was contemplating Rogozin for a job in the administration of Putin or as a manager for two regions of Ukraine that were captured by Russian forces. According to sources mentioned in that article, Rogozin was “in favor” of Putin, who was “remarkably warm” toward him in two public encounters since the beginning of Russia’s invasion in February.

Rogozin’s bombastic remarks and other pro-war acts, according to those individuals, were a factor in that. That includes the images of Russian cosmonauts flying the flags of the conquered territories while aboard the International Space Station being published by Roscosmos on July 4. Both the European Space Agency and NASA voiced protests in response to this, with NASA criticizing Russia for employing the ISS “for political purposes to assist its conflict against Ukraine.”

In response to the ESA’s July 12 announcement that it was formally ending collaboration with Roscosmos on the ExoMars mission, Rogozin announced he would tell cosmonauts on the International Space Station (ISS) to stop using a European robotic arm on the module of Nauka, part of the Russian component of the station. However, Russian rather than European activities on the station would be more impacted by that choice. Rogozin’s only response to his firing was a post on his Telegram channel that contained a video and a thank-you note to Roscosmos.
