Rumours that Dmitry Rogozin might be leaving Roscosmos as CEO have been confirmed. Vladimir Putin today dismissed Dmitry Rogozin as General Director of Roscosmos state corporation and appointed Yury Borisov, former Deputy Prime Minister of Defense Industry.
Sources in the publication MK call the position of head of state corporation “execution” due to the huge problems in the industry and the lack of progress by the space powers when it comes to exploration of Mars and the Moon. This is true: a “shift in the scientific cosmos,” was recently announced.
The leadership of the country hopes that Yuri Borisov can handle a challenging mission. He is an expert in science and industry, and he has held high-ranking positions at the Federal Agency for Industry for many years. He was also Deputy Minister for Industry and Trade.
Roscosmos has been headed by Dmitry Rogozin since May 24, 2018, we are reminded. Dmitry Rogozin, the CEO of Roscosmos, has been featured in a video on Telegram.
