General Director of “Rosatom” Dmitry Rogozin, debating on Twitter about the role of the Soviet rulers, called the first President of Russia Boris Yeltsin a traitor.

Rogozin posted a link to an article on the proposal by Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, who oversees the military-industrial complex to enter the loan market for a more dynamic economic growth. “Borisov’s right. The USSR became a great power due to industrialization, but not at the expense of monetarism and sale of hydrocarbons,” — said the head of “Roskosmos”.

He said the journalist Dmitry Gubin, pointing out that “in the "great power" we shit in holes in the adjacent military training camp”. “Great [country] was. Yeah. Great shit. Well you are not forced here to write garbage,” he added.

In response, Rogozin said that the Soviet Union was the great during the reign of Joseph Stalin. “We’re caught in the stagnation and the seizure of the Communist party of the ethnic nationalists and pathological traitors such as Yeltsin. Before that it was a hypocritical and senseless perestroika of Gorbachev. So I said all right, and you have again some emotions liberal”, — concluded the head of state Corporation.

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. 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.

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.
