That particular satellite that flew on Angara is just a dummy payload right?
Maybe yes, maybe not: As expected, the US Space Force radar tracked Kosmos-2555 in a 279 by 294-kilometer orbit with an inclination 96.5 degrees to the Equator. It had similar parameters to those of EMKA-1 and EMKA-2 military imaging satellites launched in 2018 and 2021, respectively.

there are already 8000 captured Nazis in the Donbass, they will quickly rebuild what they themselves destroyed

Great joke: There is still a lot of things that the real Nazis destroyed 80 years ago. that neither USSR nor Russia ever fixed since.

And if Rogozin is responsible for rebuilding, it will still look like that in 80 years...

I hope the dill will clog some turbopumps of the Nazi made Soyus
you need to be friends with neighbors, the first amendment of the US constitution that Russia is an enemy №1/2
Americans think of the Russian trail when they get up in the morning when they have sex. when a tree branch knocks on the window at night, they hide under the covers they add a step in a dark alley

all because they know that on the other side of the planet they are closely watched

So true! Friendly neighbors are ones that do not intentionally destroy residential property, steal washing machines, block food export important for all the world etc.
Also good neighbors do not invade their neighborhood using the same cheap excuse that Adolf used in September 1939.

Political ramifications aside, part of me is almost happy to have lived long enough to witness actual space piracy.

space letter of marque when?

Very unfortunate:rolleyes:. In the past, Russia used space to make friends and to achieve a good technical reputation. Russian space was generally well regarded.
But given recent actions all that is being lost, and it will take decades to recover trust and prestige.
Makes me sad, because I've always been a fan of Russian space. I really wish the propaganda and rhetoric are toned down, and they focus again on hardware and missions...

Do you hear that? Half of Europe is laughing.
Technically speaking, he's not wrong. They're not privatizing, they're nationalizing.. Even back in the 90's, it was more of a takeover by the cronies than 'privatization'. Including in space industry, and that's how they went from Energia and Buran to still using the cramped Soyuz to this day

Its more about the "lack" of sanctions despite Russia actually doing, what we all know of Russia.
