Russia will leave the ISS space station after 2024

Date:

Russia will no longer participate in the operations of the International Space Station (ISS) after 2024.

“Of course we will fulfill all our obligations to our partners,” Yuri Borisov, the new chief of the space agency, said during a televised meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.

“But the decision to leave the station after 2024 has been made.” Borisov also announced that construction of a Russian space station should begin before the exit. The ISS had been running for years and had been disrupted repeatedly by malfunctions.

Even before the war, Russia was considering dismantling its modules and possibly using them for a new space station.

Putin overthrows Roskosmos boss
In mid-July, Russian President Vladimir Putin fired the previous head of the Roskosmos space agency, Dmitry Rogozin (see video above). Rogozin had repeatedly complained about the West’s withdrawal from joint space projects as a result of the Russian military operation in Ukraine.

In view of the political tensions between Moscow and Washington during the war in Ukraine, he had repeatedly questioned cooperation with the US.
