Keywords: German rocket engines, German rocket experts, Soviet rocket genesis

A more accurate picture of the genesis of post-war Soviet rocket propulsion can now be painted. The author was granted unprecedented access to the archives of Moscow enterprises and research facilities. This material is supplemented by that from new Russian publications in the nineties and personal interviews with the German rocket experts who were taken to the USSR. For the first time it became clear that the raketnyje dvigateli (rocket engines) of even today's Soyuz launcher are based on the basic developments of German experts.
