A big salary, luxury cars, and a new dacha—Russia’s space leader lives large
A leading critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Alexei Navalny, recently turned his attention toward the country's space program. In an entertaining 13-minute video not unlike those produced by "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" on HBO, Navalny tackles corruption surrounding the construction of the Vostochny Spaceport in far-eastern Russia, as well as the apparently lavish lifestyle of Roscosmos leader Dmitry Rogozin. (The video is in Russian; it was translated for Ars by Robinson Mitchell. The English-language captions are mostly accurate.)

Funny and sad at the same time.

That's actually kinda poor by our standards.
Guess the space industry really is in a decline here...

Maybe for your standards - but not for an autocratic government. There is more fun (in the sense of DF) to come.

Just look at the various former Soviet republics that had more time to adapt to such kind of government...
