Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Roscosmos state corporation, called a good idea the flight of Russian astronauts on SpaceX ships.

“This is normal cooperation, which should always be in manned space, - Rogozin said on the air of Komsomolskaya Pravda radio.

According to him, Russian cosmonauts are also ready to fly on Chinese ships. Except for the certification is necessary for the devices of Elon Musk, Rogozin specified.

Prior to that, he rated the new US SpaceX CrewDragon spaceships as “more glamorous” than the domestic Soyuz. However, the head of Roskosmos specified, the Mask ships are, in fact, analogues of the Soyuz.

Earlier, Rogozin had written an article for Forbes about the launch of the CrewDragon on the ISS, entitled "This Is Their War, Not Ours".

- This is something! - commented on the article by Musk.

Note that right during the historical launch of Max's manned spacecraft, the head of Roskosmos yearned for Soviet times and wrote about this to his classmate.

Later, Rogozin decided to move from words to actions and announced another attempt to restore the “Gagarin Start”. True, so far the intentions have remained only in the plans. But the Roscosmos enterprise - the Ust-Katavsky Car-Building Plant - voiced its elevators with the legendary phrase of the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.
