Dmitry Rogozine: Gleb Schelkunov / Kommersant
General Director of “Rosatom” Dmitry Rogozin erased your post on Twitter in which he called the first President of Russia Boris Yeltsin nationalist and a traitor. When you click on the link now says the tweet is not available.
While Rogozin left the original message in which he endorsed the proposal by Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov to market borrowing to more dynamic economic growth and called the Soviet Union a great power. In response to this tweet by the journalist Dmitry Gubin pointed out that “in “great power” we shit in holes in the adjacent military training camp”. In the now remote publishing Rogozin Gubin wrote that the Soviet Union was a great under Joseph Stalin, and “you and me, we found stagnation and the seizure of the Communist party of the ethnic nationalists and pathological traitors such as Yeltsin.”
To work in the government and Roscosmos, Rogozin made his political career. In the mid-2000s he was head of the party “Rodina” national-conservative wing, and during this period, for example, was marked by participation in a controversial video, “Clean Moscow from garbage”, which was released on the eve of elections to the Moscow city Duma and was rejected by many political forces. The then Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov blamed the policy of xenophobia and extremism, “homeland” has been removed from all elections, and Rogozin himself soon left the post of party Chairman, after which he participated in the “Russian March”.
In 1998-1999, the Duma faction of the Communist party launched impeachment proceedings against Yeltsin. The state Duma has formed a special Commission, accusing the first President of treason, the capture of Federal power and changing the constitutional order, but in the end the attempted impeachment failed. In the composition of the Committee and Rogozin.
