    Moscow’s space agency told President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday that they decided to quit the International Space Station “after 2024”.

    This decision was made due to the tensions rage between the Kremlin and the West over Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine. Moreover, there are several rounds of unprecedented sanctions against Russia. Russia and the United States have worked side by side on the ISS, which has been in orbit since 1998.

    Yury Borisov told Putin that they will fulfill all the obligations to their partners. But they made the decision to quit the station.

    Since Russia and US are working together on the station until now, Borisov added in his statement that they will work together on establishing a Russian orbital station. President Putin finds it good as he replied in comments released by the Kremlin.
