This page is intended to alert states and companies as well as investors about high risks, both for global security and directly to Russian government enterprises space customers and partners to be stained by common projects with a country “sponsoring world terrorism”.
The space sector, as one of the public sectors in Russia, has always been politicized, as well as militarized in the new history. Like in all government structures with large financial flows in this area there are high levels of corruption under the direction and control of the secret services of the Russian Federation. Frequently all new projects are either originally conceived as the way the special services use budget money (they often become never-achievable long-term projects), or these are dual-use technologies development projects, or strictly military in general. Thus, any links with Russia’s government space projects are at risk to lead and are likely to lead to the use of available capabilities for military purposes (available in result of the project, external ideas and technology, profit from external customers etc.).
