Dmitry Olegovich Rogozin (Russian: Дми́трий Оле́гович Рого́зин; born 21 December 1963) is a Russian politician who was Director General of Roscosmos since 2018 until July 15, 2022. He was previously Deputy Prime Minister of Russia in charge of the defense industry from 2011 to 2018, and Russia's ambassador to NATO from 2008 to 2011.
He was also the leader of the far-right Rodina political party, which was created in 2003, until it merged with other parties to form A Just Russia in 2006.
Early life and education
Rogozin was born in Moscow to the family of a Soviet military scientist. He graduated from Moscow State University in 1986 with a degree in journalism, and in 1988 he graduated from the University of Marxism–Leninism under the Moscow City Committee of the CPSU with a degree in economics.
His thesis on "Philosophy and Theory of Wars" earned him a Doctor of Philosophy while a Doctor of Technical Sciences was awarded him in the specialty "weapons theory, military-technical policy, weapons systems". Both were earned while he was professionally engaged in politics.
According to anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny, Rogozin earned a salary of 29.5 million rubles ($460,000) in 2018, which is vastly higher than that of NASA's chief. Engineers at Roscosmos make about $10,000 a year.
Rogozin owns a 8,600 sq. foot dacha north of Moscow worth about $3 million.
Russians critical of the 2022 Russian mobilization are reportedly using social media and other electronic means (e.g. Twitter) to enquire en masse Russia's top officials, who support war with Ukraine and mobilization, whether they themselves or their sons would go to the front. Most either refuse to answer or block the person asking e.g. Dmitry Rogozin's reaction to the BBC question on Twitter, whether he has advised his son Alexei to volunteer. In 2016, his son Alexei Rogozin was appointed deputy director of the Property Department of the Ministry of Defense.
