Moscow. The Russian module of the International Space Station will remain operational until 2028. The Russian space agency Roskosmos decided on Tuesday, as the state agency Tass reported. After extensive deliberations, the Roscosmos Scientific and Technical Council decided to continue using the Russian segment of the ISS until 2028.
Partly because of tensions with Western partners over the war of aggression against Ukraine, Russia intends to “get out” of the ISS and wants to build its own space station.
The design planning for the station will be completed by the end of 2023, Roskosmos recently announced. The first module should therefore be set up by the end of 2027.
