The geographic location of facilities to produce components of American spacecraft has long been influenced by politics. High-ranking members of Congress would often pressure NASA officials to award contracts for production in their home state. The politicians could then boast to their constituents about creating jobs. As a result, every state has had some role in spacecraft production, even if that means shipping parts great distances, or radically changing the design of components (e.g. segmenting solid rocket boosters to allow for transport).
Was this also an issue in the Soviet space program? Did local politicians try to get facilities in their jurisdiction, and how widely dispersed were actual production facilities?
I would prefer an answer in the Soviet era, if possible; otherwise, a comparison of Roskosmos to NASA would be satisfactory.
