Russia dismisses controversial space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin

It’s official: Dmitry Rogozin, director general of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos, has been ousted from his position.

After years of making inflammatory statements that have brought international criticism, Rogozin will now be replaced. According to an official release from the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree (opens in new tab) dismissing Rogozin from his duties on Friday (July 15). The decree states simply that Putin will “Release Dmitry Olegovich Rogozin from the post of General Director of the State Space Corporation Roscosmos,” and that the decree “comes into force from the date of its signing” (translation by Google).
