Yesterday, the head of Roscosmos, in an interview with Russia 24, spoke about additional funding for the industry – a potential trillion rubles, according to Dmitry Rogozin, would push the creation of a new promising transport system, the Zeus space nuclear tug. That statement, apparently, was not understood by everyone correctly, and today the head of Roscosmos, using the example of one of the publications, spoke more clearly.
In particular, he said that there is still enough money for Zeus. “And by the way, despite yesterday’s catchy headlines in the media, we have enough financial resources until 2024 to work on Zeus, so the “experts” should not be hysterical”– he wrote on his page on VKontakte and in his Telegram channel.
So for now, you can do without a trillion. By the way, Dmitry Rogozin proposed to print this money and give it to the industry for powerful and promising investment projects – at the expense of those funds of the Bank of Russia that were arrested abroad.
