This is the young woman that the Kremlin has decided is the 'Main Enemy'
[I'm using the old Soviet term for the United States] to be punished for
the space industry's string of disasters -- by revealing the atrocious state of
the space industry infrastructure and security lapses.
Here is her website: lana-sator.livejournal.com...
This is the section of the rocket factory she snuck into for five
nights running a few weeks ago:
This is the series of photos -- imagine her climbing around and UP those
towers and getting these pictures. Attagirl!!
I sense a kindred spirit in this young woman -- here's the kind of fence-busting
that I've done myself at Russian space facilities in the past:
Me at Baykonur, 1995: www.jamesoberg.com...
Me in ‘Star City’: www.jamesoberg.com...
Suggestion: if you want to use her pictures, better download them NOW before they disappear.
And before SHE disappears.
The Kremlin over-reaction is nothing short of insane, in my view. And dangerous,
both to Sator personally, to others who are following her lead, and to the kind of
openness and trust needed as a workable foundation for international trust,
especially for space cooperation. I hope that grown-ups in Moscow turn their attention
to this, but I'm afraid it actually reflects the true instincts of the Putin regime.
Unauthorized People Must Have No Access to Roscosmos Sites - Rogozin
MOSCOW. Dec 29 0716 GMT (Interfax) - Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who supervises the activity of the Federal Space Agency
(Roscosmos) at the government, has called impermissible the entry of unauthorized persons into Agency sites and demanded urgent measures to prevent
similar situations in the future.
Rogozin told Agency head Vladimir Popovkin that security of the Agency sites must be discussed "due to the recent entry of unauthorized persons.
That is an impermissible situation."
"I think we must take urgent measures and ensure order," he said.
Rogozin also asked Popovkin about causes of the latest spacecraft wrecks. "By the order of the prime minister, we will be doing a big joint work:
We must plan our imminent steps today," he said. He promised political and organizational support of the Military Industrial Commission and himself
to the Agency.
A source in the law enforcement agencies told Interfax on Wednesday that the special services had launched a probe into the media publications
stating that bloggers had entered the territory of NPO Energomash (Khimki, Moscow region), a producer of liquid rocket engines.
"A probe has been launched into this publication, on the basis of which a procedural decision will be made whether or not a criminal case should
be opened," the source said.
Energomash produces liquid rocket engines for civil rockets (from the first Soviet models, R-1, to the rocket carrier Angara) and military rockets
(installed in rockets such as R-36M (SS-18 Satan) and its modifications. Energomash has the status of a highly secure facility.
Rogozin promises stringent measures over FSA security lapses
MOSCOW, December 29 14:18 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin has promised stringent measures in view of security breaches at
Roscosmos (Federal Space Agency) facilities. The FSA should submit its proposals on that score before the end of January next year.
"Stringent-enough measures will be taken. Therefore I want to say once again that there shall be no laxity any longer on the part of either
'drowsy cats' that will be exemplarily punished soon if they fail to take measures (to ensure the security of facilities) or 'insolent mice' -
alien persons that penetrated with photo cameras (into a facility)," the Vice-Premier told journalists after meeting Roscosmos Director Vladimir
"Thereby, we shall be through with this matter, and elementary and strict enough order will be introduced," Rogozin said, pointing out that he
heard explanations given by the Roscosmos leadership on the problem of breaches of security measures at facilities that are under their jurisdiction.
"We give certain time to correct all the flaws that have been revealed, including publicly, too. I give time till the end of January, after which
selective inspections will be made on my instruction in the security system of facilities that are under Roscosmos’ authority and in those branches
that are within its jurisdiction," Rogozin said.
The Vice-Premier also pointed out that the work would be done to standardize approaches to ensuring strategic facilities' security. "I want to
say that I do not advise anyone any longer to penetrate into strategic facilities," Rogozin emphasized.
