Russia needs to generate extra sources of revenues in order to make its space industry
Cutting off defence expenditures and diverting them in space industry is not the solution.
Russian deep state and U.S deep state are in continuous struggle for dominance.
Russia does not have huge middle class to generate wealth.It can only generate wealth slowly as

Previously Russia invested a lot in India(not that way) but as a hedge against sanctions ,

it is the biggest national security threat to Russia apart fropm U.S nukes etc.Russian deep state understands this. Thats why so much desperate activity yu are seeing on ths front. Especially on diversion /catering of resources to space sector to stop the revenue generation from U.S
