Space: Russia has not set a date for its withdrawal from the ISS

(Reuters) – Russia has not set a date for its withdrawal from the International Space Station (ISS), the head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said on Friday, quoted by Russian news agencies.

“We are starting the exit process. Whether it’s mid-2024 or 2025, it all depends on the state and working capacity of the ISS. But the fact that we’re going to start doing that doesn’t It’s no secret,” the new head of Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, said Friday in an interview on state television, quoted by the RIA Novosti news agency.

Earlier this month, Roscosmos and NASA signed a new agreement to bring their respective astronauts to the space station, which is now one of the last ties of cooperation between the United States and Russia, amid tensions exacerbated by the war in Ukraine.

Russia’s departure from the ISS would be less imminent than Moscow had previously indicated, a senior NASA official told Reuters.
