Roscosmos to Reduce Financing of ISS by 30 Billion Rubles

The Federal Space Program for 2016-2025 (FSP) has cut down expenses on operation of the International Space Station by around 10 per cent ($400).

      Financing its participation in the ISS program takes more than 30 percent of the Roscosmos budget and there is no sense in prolonging the participation in the ISS program after 2020, the Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin declared earlier.

      As emphasized by the Roscosmos head Igor Komarov, the updated Federal Space Program focuses on development and maintenance of orbital communication satellites, relaying and broadcasting, remote sensing of the Earth, the means of Russia’s gaining and keeping the leading positions in the world market of space launches, the relevant land space infrastructure, as well as basic space exploration, including that of the Moon and laying the groundwork for the future of the Moon piloted flyby  in the framework of international cooperation.
