It's full-speed up for Russia's independent abstraction program, contempt corruption scandals and world turmoil, President Vladimir Putin told abstraction manufacture officials Thursday successful a televised meeting.

The first module of Russia's caller orbital level — arguably yet different motion of the acheronian and little cooperative caller era successful space that is group to travel nan extremity of nan International Space Station (ISS) successful 2030 — should motorboat successful 2027, Putin said.

'As nan resources of nan International Space Station tally out,' Putin said, 'we request not conscionable 1 segment, but nan full position to beryllium brought into service.'

'It's a pity ... It is simply a antagonistic experience,' Putin said. 'But it will beryllium utilized successful nan early to debar immoderate mistakes.' 

Since it began successful 1988, nan ISS has served arsenic a exemplary of world technological cooperation, betwixt nan United States, Europe, Russia and others.

But Moscow's existent plans to proceed its information successful nan now 25-year-old ISS until 2028, Putin said, was a only impermanent measure.

The first module of Russia's caller orbital abstraction position — 1 motion of nan acheronian and little cooperative caller era successful abstraction group to travel nan extremity of nan International Space Station (ISS) successful 2030 — will motorboat successful 2027, Putin told abstraction manufacture officials Thursday successful a televised meeting

Moscow's existent plans to proceed its information successful nan now 25-year-old ISS until 2028, Putin said, was a only impermanent measure. Above, Putin astatine Thursday's abstraction meeting

Yuri Borisov, caput of nan Russian abstraction agency, Roscosmos, endorsed Putin's position arsenic a intends of maintaining nan country's capabilities successful parented abstraction flight.

'The ISS is getting aged and will travel to an end,' Russian agencies quoted him arsenic telling reporters.

'If we don't commencement large-scale activity connected creating a Russian orbital position successful 2024,' Borisov continued, 'it is rather apt that we will suffer our capacity because of nan clip gap.' 

'The ISS will nary longer beryllium location and nan Russian position won't beryllium ready.'

Putin emphasized successful Thursday's televised gathering that nan caller position had to 'consider each precocious achievements of subject and exertion and person nan imaginable to return connected nan tasks of nan future.' 

He said nan improvement of nan caller abstraction position would proceed 'all successful bully time.'

A small complete 1 twelvemonth ago, Russian abstraction agency Roscosmos showed disconnected a exemplary of nan country's planned caller abstraction position - supra - which will person 4 modules successful its first phase

The planned Russian abstraction position will yet grow to six modules and a work platform, nan state said, erstwhile it afloat leaves nan ISS. But dissimilar nan ISS, nan orbital level is not designed to beryllium perpetually staffed. Cosmonauts will enactment for only 2 periods each year

In his remarks yesterday, Putin further elaborated that he had been afloat informed astir nan method mishaps that led to nan clang landing of nan Luna-25 trade successful August connected nan moon's southbound pole.

The incident, which occurred during pre-landing maneuvers complete nan lunar surface, served to item backing problems, corruption scandals and different setbacks that person trailed a abstraction programme that was once the pridefulness of nan country.

Mikhail Marov, 90, a apical astronomer who was a cardinal advisor connected nan grounded abstraction expedition was rushed to infirmary pursuing Luna-25's crash, suffering a 'sharp deterioration' successful his health.

Marov's wellness information arose aft he called for an investigation into nan nonaccomplishment of nan expedition, Russia's first lunar probe successful 47 years.

'We will of people beryllium moving connected this. The lunar programme will continue,' Putin said. 'There are nary plans to adjacent it.' 

'Mistakes happen,' nan Russian president added. 'This is specified a analyzable activity.' 

Putin besides advised nan assembled abstraction experts to resoluteness problems pinch salaries, which he implied are excessively debased successful Russia's abstraction industry, successful an effort to pull overseas abstraction specialists — arsenic good arsenic to stoke caller liking from nan backstage sector

Putin besides advised nan assembled abstraction experts to resoluteness problems pinch salaries, which he implied are excessively debased successful Russia's abstraction industry, successful an effort to pull overseas abstraction specialists — arsenic good arsenic to stoke caller liking from nan backstage sector. 

But, while Roscosmos main Borisov said that nan adjacent satellite motorboat mightiness beryllium moved guardant to 2026 from 2027 arsenic now planned, nan caller abstraction guidelines remains the main privilege for nan abstraction agency.

Interfax, citing an unnamed manufacture source, reported that Russia's caller abstraction position would costs $6 billion. And, erstwhile completed, nan guidelines will beryllium capable to accommodate up to 4 cosmonauts and technological equipment. 

'The purpose is for location to beryllium nary gaps,' Putin said, 'for nan activity to support gait pinch nan depletion of nan ISS's resources.'
