I hope this ignites a new same race - this time humans on mars.

I doubt it. Remember this is for all non-classified Russian space projects. Their equivalent of NASA, Roscosmos will only get part of that funding. In total it works out at $10 billion per year. NASA's budget is already $17 billion per year.
Roscosmos currently gets around $3.8 billion per year.
