Russia’s space station plans were detailed by Roscosmos head, Yuri Borisov, noting they are open to international cooperation on the Russian Orbital Station (ROS).

The start of deployment of the ROS is in 2027.

Borisov spoke at the plenary session of the Royal Readings – 2023, adding that Russia will support the work of the International Space Station “exactly as long as it is necessary, based on the technical condition. At the same time, it is impossible to interrupt the Russian manned program and lose competencies,” according to a Roscosmos Telegram posting.

“Although the new station is called Russian, we are open for cooperation and invite colleagues from friendly countries to participate in this ambitious project,” Borisov said.

The competitive advantage of ROS is a modular architecture with a reconfiguration option, extended service life, advanced capabilities for scientific research and orbital production. The station must become efficient and rational, notes the Roscosmos posting.
