...or the source was the same...
without independent confirmation from a completely unrelated source, the jury is still out -- at least, this used to be standard journalism practice
which does not mean that Igor is wrong, of course

Thanks JimO for posting this URL link.
Wait a minute…this article states the same thing as that article from Moscow Times (I had posted to fpspace list serv on March 17) that Igor Lissov castigated, in regards to the 70% reduction in funds from 3.4 trillion to 1.4 trillion rubles:
In January, the Russian government approved a 10-year plan crafted by Russia’s space agency, RosCosmos, covering everything from contributions to the International Space Station to weather and navigation satellites and human space exploration. About 15% of the spending would go to “basic physics in space,” says Zelenyi, a plasma physicist. But the plan is considerably leaner than expected. With the government’s coffers squeezed by low oil prices, RosCosmos has had to slash its budget for the 10-year plan to 1.4 trillion rubles ($20.5 billion), down from the 3.4 trillion rubles the agency asked for a year ago.
So the statistics were accurate that the Moscow Times quoted.
