Kathy Lueders, head of space operations for the US space agency, NASA, said in interview with Reuters this Wednesday (19) that Russian authorities have informed that they intend to remain part of the International Space Station at least until 2028, when your orbiting outpost itself will be completed.

The information contradicts a statement by Yuri Borisov, the new head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, who on Tuesday (17) had said during a meeting with President Vladimir Putin that the decision to leave the station “after 2024 was taken.” After that, Russia would start building its own orbital station, according to Borisov.

“We are not getting any indication at any level of work that anything has changed,” Lueders told Reuters. She added that NASA’s relations with Roscosmos continue “as usual”.

It is speculated that the announcement of leaving the International Space Station, launched in 1998, would be an attempt by Putin to force the United States to withdraw part of the sanctions applied due to to the war in Ukraine.

The station is managed by Russia, the United States, Europe, Japan and Canada, but the project has already had partnerships with other countries, such as Brazil.
