Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov rumored to take over Roscosmos from Dmitry Rogozin.

What is his line of action? Would be funny if Rogozin was further demoted (let's remember he considers his current position a fall from Putin's graces) as a result of his actions during the last half year, but only karmic. Sure hope he isn't *rewarded*, although it's difficult to conceive something worse happening to the Russian space program short of complete cancellation.

According to Meduza, Dmitry Rogozin could take over as Chief of Staff of the Presidential Administration from Anton Vaino, or possibly take on a role overseeing the Donbas by replacing Dmitry Kozak.
You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

Rogozin's officially gone, Borisov is the new head of Roscosmos... let's see whether catastrophic continuism goes on, or he's slightly more pragmatic:

Breaking on @Reuters wire - Russia's space agency Roscosmos and NASA have officially signed a long-sought agreement on integrated crew flights, allowing Russians to fly on SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule and American's to fly on Russia's Soyuz

Yes, this is happening.

Yes, the timing is coincidental.

Seriously.

Let's enjoy the little things in the purge: Rogozin's artistic side (songs written by him and for some reason kept in Roscosmos' website) is being damnatio-memoriae'd.

I had been hoping Krikalev would be named to the post.  He seemed the most West-friendly member of the Roscosmos leadership.
