Russian plot 'to crash space rocket filled with explosives into Kyiv'
Russian plot ‘to crash space rocket filled with explosives into Ukraine’s capital city Kyiv’: Officials ‘presented plan to Vladimir Putin, according to leaked phone calls from space agency chief’
- Leaked phone calls involving former head of Russia’s Space Agency and current rocket chief reveal plot to crash space rocket crammed with explosives into Kyiv
Senior Russian officials are plotting to crash a space rocket crammed with explosives into the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, it has been claimed.
Leaked phone calls involving the former head of the Russian Space Agency Dmitry Rogozin and a current rocket chief Dmitri Baranov reveal the alleged plot.
The scheme was presented to Putin earlier this year by his close aide Anton Vaino, head of the Russian presidential administration. It is not known what decision – if any – was made by Putin.
However, Rogozin – fired last year by Putin as space agency chief – was in September welcomed back into the fold by being appointed as a Russian senator.
The genocidal scheme involved a civilian-use Soyuz-type carrier rocket and tinkering with it so it does not reach orbit, but instead crashes into a Ukrainian city – probably the capital Kyiv.
The plan indicates a launch of the nine-ton mega-bomb from Plesetsk cosmodrome near Arkhangelsk, according to taped calls revealed by German news outlet Bild.

Baranov, head of Russia’s Progress Space Rocket Centre, told Rogozin that the 164ft rocket can be steered ‘in any direction, simply in any direction we want’ by rotating during an eight to 22 second period after launch.
Baranov is the man in charge of making launch vehicles for manned and unmanned missions to the International Space Station.
He pointed out a key problem to Rogozin on the recording.
‘It’s a supersonic re-entry into the atmosphere, and the existing heavy FAB-500 aerial bombs don’t work, they’re starting to overheat TNT is destroyed in them, and so performance drops critically.
‘Our guided bombs are not designed for this either, and they have no protection against overheating.’
In other words this giant bomb could explode as it re-entered the atmosphere after launch, wreaking untold havoc.
Rogozin then consults Yuri Solomonov, general designer for ground-based missile systems at the Moscow State Institute of Thermal Engineering, and former head of development for the Topol-M ballistic missile.
The conspirators also feared that parts of the rocket bomb could fall on Russian territory, but resolve to overcome all problems
According to the leaked recordings, the impatient Rogozin demanded: ‘How big are the crash areas? Where do we have risks?’
Rogozin asks in a voicemail: ‘Approximately how long will it take to prepare all this s***?’
Baranov tells him: ‘It might take six months, but that’s kind of the upper limit.’
Solomonov subsequently found a solution to the heat problem of the planned Ukraine rocket.
Baronov assured that the scheme would work.
‘The launch and the flight towards any target is not a problem at all,’ he said. ‘There would need to be some small modernisation…so we don’t need to go to orbit, but follow a clear trajectory.
‘Another issue would be to sort the area of some of the debris. There will be no issue over the third stage [debris], as it’ll land wherever the rest would [hit].
‘The key question is to ensure it reaches the ground and not burn before that, since the speed would be 6 kilometres [3.72 miles] per second.’

Rogozin was fired from the Russian Space Agency last year after threatening to let the ‘International Space Station’ and its Western astronauts crash into a NATO country. He was also closely associated with the delayed Satan-2 missile, also known as Sarmat (pictured)
At one point Rogozin says: ‘Today I am seeing the man who will meet our Great and Terrible [Vladimir Putin].’
‘Had a chat with Vaino [Anton Vaino, head of the Russian presidential administration],’ he said. ‘Told him about this huge thing, that might arrive from the Arkhangelsk region.
‘He got really interested and asked to prepare a memo by Monday, so that he reports it to the Chief [Putin].’
Putin is believed to have been informed about the Armageddon scheme on 16 January this year.
‘It is not known how the dictatorial president reacted and whether he gave the order to his zealous loyalists to implement the crazy rocket terror plan,’ said the media outlet.
But Rogozin was subsequently promoted to become a senator in the Russian parliament for the invaded Ukrainian region of Zaporizhzhia.
Rogozin was fired from the Russian Space Agency last year after threatening to let the ‘International Space Station’ and its Western astronauts crash into a NATO country.
He was also closely associated with the delayed Satan-2 missile, also known as Sarmat.
This ‘unstoppable’ 15,880mph intercontinental missile system is the size of a 14-storey tower block.
‘We just need to finish some of the procedures in a purely administrative and bureaucratic way and move on to mass production and putting them on combat duty,’ said Putin earlier this month.
‘And we will do this in the near future.’
Yet this directly contradicted the words of his current space agency chief who said on 1 September that 208-ton Satan-2 ‘has been put on combat duty’.
