The head of Roscosmos explained why Russia is leaving the ISS. It’s not about the Americans or the sanctions

The new head of Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, said that the main modules of the International Space Station exceeded their resource several times. This is the main reason Russia’s withdrawal from the project.

To date, the resources of the main modules of the ISS have been developed many times. This is the technical side of the issue. Warranties have long been exceeded“, Borisov said.

According to the head of Roskosmos, the priority issue is the life of both Russian and foreign members of the station crew. “There is such a thing – metal aging, many engineers know what it is. Today, the intensity of various kinds of emergencies, failure of equipment, the appearance of microcracks is beginning to increase. This is a natural process at the end of the life cycle of any product.“, – said Borisov.

It is impossible to predict exactly when this process will begin to turn into an avalanche and create a real threat to the crew, the head of Roscosmos emphasized. “All these forecasts are rather probabilistic. But, according to the authoritative opinion of many experts, the likelihood of such a process is just possible after 2024, which is why I announced this period. Today, the intensity of various kinds of emergencies, failure of equipment, the appearance of microcracks is beginning to increase. This is a natural process at the end of the life cycle of any product.“, he added.
