“In 2014, there was a real threat of sanctions against our space and rocket industry. I warned them in this way. It worked. This was not a joke on our part, but a real threat. And they heard her, ”Rogozin wrote in response to one of the users on Twitter.
In 2014, Rogozin, who served as deputy prime minister, commented on sanctions against the Russian space industry. Then he said: "After analyzing the sanctions against our space industry, I propose the United States to deliver its astronauts to the ISS using a trampoline."
The day before, the founder of the American company SpaceX, Ilon Mask, at a press conference on the results of the successful launch of the Crew Dragon Mask to the ISS, recalled Rogozin's joke and noted that “the trampoline is working.”
