Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that Russia keeps plans to create its own orbital station and will warn partners in the space program in advance about leaving the ISS project from 2025. The life of the station expires in 2024, while earlier it was reported about a possible extension of its operation until 2030.
The office of the deputy chairman of the government said that due to the deterioration of the technical condition of the station and in order to avoid risks, it is necessary to conduct a technical survey of the ISS.
“And based on the results, make a decision,” Borisov noted, “and honestly warn partners about leaving the ISS from the age of 25.”
As MK previously reported, the Russian authorities have already approved the decision to create an independent domestic station.
