The head of Russia's space agency has made threats to the United States and other nations over the past week, while also making mistakes.

He has drawn the ire of space experts across the spectrum who have accused him of being a propaganda mouthpiece for the Russian military.

Eric Berger, senior space editor at Ars Technica, was nice to see Rogozin's propaganda. Berger was responding to a post about a video that appears to show Russian soldiers calling on the Ukrainian military to leave their posts.

His sentiment has been echoed by the likes of Gene Mikulka, founder of the Talking Space, and the editor of NASA Watch.


The wave of criticism comes on the heels of some particularly crazy posts from the Russian space program, including a rant last Thursday in which he seemed to threaten to pull the Russians out of the International Space Station and allow it to fall back down to Earth.

If you block cooperation with us, who will save the International Space Station from falling into the United States?

He went on to threaten other nations as well.

There is a chance of dropping a 500-ton structure to India and China. The risks are yours because the ISS does not fly over Russia. Are you prepared for them?

The International Space Station flies over Russia.

It is highly unlikely that the Russian government pulls its cosmonauts from the International Space Station. What is certain is that the head of a prominent space agency is in a bad position because he is fueling the propaganda flames for Moscow.

The head of the Russian space program made an idiotic mistake.
