Russian space agency against economic sanctions
Rogozin (Roscosmos): 'ISS could crash into the sea'
The economic sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russia, because of the armed invasion in Ukraine, have frozen about half of Moscow's financial reserves. This was stated by the Russian Finance Minister, Anton Siluanov, admitting that "at the moment about 300 billion dollars are not usable".
Meanwhile, the president of Russia's space agency Roscosmos, Dimitri Rogozin, said that Russia's commercial exclusion could cause the International Space Station (ISS) to crash into the sea. This is because the sanctions are likely to have a decisive impact on the Russian part of the space mission, which is responsible for keeping the space station in orbit.
It is reported by the British newspaper "Guardian", recalling that the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) had previously stated that it was committed to finding ways to keep Iss in orbit without Russian help. An apocalyptic scenario perfectly in line with the Kremlin's narrative.
