Despite massive injection into the sector budget and launch of 35 satellites into the orbit, financial fraud surfaced in a number of businesses fail from the satellite Express-MD2 and Telkom-3, degradation of the GLONASS satellite system and a number of other problems. Some of them, may be associated with poor-quality bearings.

In mid-December 2012 illegal production of bearings was reported by the Federal Security Service in the closed shop of Samara, which were designed for military and industrial technology. In the interest of the investigation details were not disclosed, but most likely, they were bearings for aerospace, given that in Samara focused many manufacturing enterprises of space and aviation.
