Russia will withdraw from the International Space Station (ISS) after 2024.

Yuri Borisov, the new boss of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, confirmed this on Tuesday after a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“There is no doubt that we will fulfill all our obligations to our partners on the ISS, but the decision to leave this station after 2024 is firm,” said the head of the Russian space program.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the decision was made “much earlier”. However, the American space agency NASA says it has not yet been officially informed. In addition, Borisov also said that Russia will focus on creating the ROSS Manned Space Station, or the Russian Orbital Service Station. We will continue the pilot program according to the approved plans.

The base (Russian) module of the ISS was launched in 1998. The space meccano is a partnership between the United States, Russia, the European Space Agency ESA (with Belgium as a partner), Canada and the Japan.
