The German astronaut Matthias Maurer considers the announced withdrawal of Russia from the International Space Station ISS to be unlikely. "You will not get out," he told the German Press Agency. One has to read between the lines with such Russian communications. ""After 2024" does not mean January 1st, 2025. That can also be 2030," said Maurer. The head of the Russian space agency Roskosmos, Yuri Borisov, said at the end of July: "The decision to exit this station after 2024 has been made."
According to current plans, next Wednesday there will be a Soyuz launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome to the ISS with NASA astronaut Frank Rubio and the Russian cosmonauts Dmitri Petelin and Sergei Prokopyev.
