MOSCOW, January 24. /TASS/. The Russian Orbital Station (ROS) as a key element of the country’s future sovereign infrastructure for human space flights is scheduled for its deployment in 2027, Roscosmos Chief Yury Borisov said at the 47th Korolyov readings conference on Tuesday.
"We will create sovereign infrastructure for human space flights to low near-Earth orbit. Its key element will be the Russian orbital station whose deployment we have scheduled for 2027," he said.
The Russian space agency will carry out all the required feasibility studies by Cosmonautics Day celebrated in Russia on April 12, the Roscosmos chief said.
In April 2021, then-Deputy Prime Minister Borisov said that the condition of the International Space Station (ISS) left much to be desired and Russia might focus on creating its own orbital outpost.
