MOSCOW, July 17. /TASS/. Head of the Russian space training center Yury Lonchakov said Russian astronauts will resume in Crimea from 2016 training for flights to the International Space Station (ISS).

In an interview with TASS he said the crews should train jointly with other crew members from NASA or the European Space Agency.

In future the training program in Crimea will include special exercises in the mountains and lifting of the crew to a helicopter from the water surface, he said.

"Last year, we studied conditions for training, discussed it with the Navy, with authorities of Sevastopol," he said. "This year, we are not ready yet, but next year we shall have sea training programs in Crimea. We used to have a base near Feodosiya and the latest training programs in Crimea were organized in 2007."

"We like it in Crimea, and the conditions there are similar to the realistic ones," he said. "The peninsula’s landscape is variable, and we may have various exercises there both in the sea and in the mountains."
