Russian politician Dmitry Rogozin, who headed the state corporation "Roscosmos" for several years, has been appointed as a "senator from Zaporizhia region."

"For me, it is an honor to represent the interests of Zaporizhia region and, in general, 'Novorossiya' (the Russian propaganda term for the southern regions of Ukraine)," Rogozin wrote in his Telegram channel.

The information that Rogozin might take a seat in the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council, first appeared in the publications "Kommersant" and "Vedomosti" on September 17.

Currently, Russia occupies only the southern part of Zaporizhia region. Moscow has never controlled the majority of the region, including the regional capital, Zaporizhzhia.
