Rogozin's last known official job is the Roscosmos Corporation, which he headed until 15 July this year. However, he has been in this position since 2018, and before that, since 2011, he was deputy head of the Russian government. He supervised the military-industrial complex, as well as the space industry. That is, in one way or another he was connected with the preparation of all that military equipment that invaded Ukraine at the end of February.
Rogozin has always actively supported Russian aggression against Ukraine. Even after the annexation of Crimea in 2014, he was one of those on whom the US and EU imposed sanctions. There were 2 cases when he tried to get to Moldova by plane, but the Romanian authorities refused to do so because of the sanctions. In 2017, after such a ban, he threatened the Romanian authorities, saying: "wait for an answer, you creeps".
After the start of the large-scale Russian invasion on 24 February, Rogozin was one of the few Russian officials who actively commented on the events. Almost immediately, he changed the name of his social media channel from "Rogozin" to "Rogozin."
He is remembered for repeatedly threatening the West with nuclear weapons, particularly the Sarmat missile.
Soon Rogozin appeared in Donbass. He himself said that he headed a group of military advisers "Tsar's Wolves" in the zone of the so-called special operation in Ukraine, who conduct inspections and also facilitate military and technical support for Russian troops.
He said it is a voluntary, not an official group of advisers. But how it may interact with official Russian structures is unknown.
During his stay in Donbass, he has already managed to make several high-profile statements. He said that "Kiev must be returned", "the SVO must be led to a victorious end" and urged "volunteers to go to war more actively".
