The woman wrote that it was unlikely that Dmitry Rogozin, general manager of Roscosmos, a state-owned enterprise for space activities, and that Roscosmos would have complimented SpaceX for this event. That's why he decided to express his wishes on behalf of the "space fans of Russia".
I do not think so #Rogozin gold #Roscosmos they will send you congratulations, they will never do it, and this is overwhelming. So please let me know that you are happy to succeed #Dragon and send you and the congratulations team! 🚀🐉

Previously, Roscosmos praised NASA for successfully installing an American capsule at the ISS, the company's press service said in Sputnik. "Our state-owned enterprise welcomes the development of mutual relations in the field of space exploration and expresses the certainty that this collaboration will be deepened," said the press service.
The Russian private space company S7 Space, owner of Sea Launch, a satellite launch service, has published a congratulatory message to SpaceX on its Facebook page. "Congratulations to SpaceX for successfully launching the Dragon Crew capsule and securing it to the ISS, a new era of space flight has begun"we read in the message.
After connecting the Dragon 2 capsule to the ISS, the alarm siren triggered the detection of a failure of the Elektron oxygen generation system in the Russian Zvezda module, which proved to be false, the ISS crew announced. The alarm was triggered by changes to the configuration after the capsule had been immobilized.
