Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Roscosmos, announced Russia’s departure from the International Space Station on the Rossiya 24 television channel. The space mission’s partners will be notified a year ahead of time, but the decision has already been made, according to all agreements.
Our proposals have been drafted… They’re delivered to the president and the government. There has already been a decision made. It’s not necessary for us to discuss it in public.
It’s too soon to speculate on how this will affect the ISS’s operations, what will happen next with Russia’s space program, or how NASA and ESA officials will respond. At the same time, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson stated confidently in mid-last week that Russia would continue to cooperate until 2030, despite the fact that the current agreement expires in 2024.
Dmitry Rogozin has made numerous statements about the Russian space program, missile weapons, and NASA’s future challenges since the start of the “military special operation.”
