Russia should reconsider terms of participation in ISS: space industry official

Russia may deploy its own service orbital station after 2024, deputy head of Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, Vladimir Solovyov said.

The Russian space agency, Roscosmos, has said it will remain part of the ISS until 2024 and that it is open to extending its participation beyond then.

“We have to reconsider the terms of further participation in the (ISS) program and focus on the implementation of orbital station programs,” Solovyov was quoted as saying by the Scientific Russia website.

Solovyov did not say whether Russia should quit the ISS before 2024.
