Russia has told the US that it will withdraw from the International Space Station if sanctions in the space sector are not lifted soon. Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos, has given this statement. Whereas Russian President Vladimir Putin and his American counterpart Joe Biden are going to meet in Geneva a few days later.
Rogozin said, ‘We have a lot of rockets ready. But due to restrictions we are not able to send them into space. This is having a direct impact on the business of the space sector. There is a lack of a specific microchip set for the spacecraft. We have no way of buying it because of restrictions.’
Actually, the sanctions that Rogozin is talking about were imposed by the US and European countries after the conflict that broke out in Crimea in Ukraine in 2014.
