Russia will remain involved in the ISS program until at least 2028

After claiming that it would leave the International Space Station partnership after 2024, Russia’s state space corporation Roscosmos has informed NASA that it will remain in the program until at least 2028. Roscosmos intends to remain involved with the ISS until a new Russian space station is operational, with a target date of 2028. He emphasized the recent MS-22 mission, in which one NASA astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts flew to the orbital laboratory on September 21st, as proof that Russia always fulfills its international obligations.

Borisov reverses Russia’s ISS exit

The Roscosmos chief’s remarks follow Russia’s recent threats to leave the space station by 2024. These threats were made by Dmitry Rogozin, the now-retired Director-General of the Russian Space Agency, as well as Borisov, who recently claimed to have informed Vladimir Putin that the final decision to leave the ISS had been made.

In terms of Russia’s role, NASA confirmed in August that each ISS partner “will continue to work through respective government processes on station extension and utilization beyond 2024.” The space station is run by five countries: Russia, Canada, the United States, Europe, and Japan.

Borisov is now citing his commitment to international obligations and the health of the orbital outpost on which Russia’s outer space cooperation is dependent, according to TASS.
