Roscosmos will build for NASA two “Soyuz” and “squeeze” Russian crews

It became known the day before that the head of the Roskosmos corporation, Dmitry Rogozin, ordered the construction of two additional Soyuz-MS ships. This decision was made in connection with the need to deliver NASA astronauts to the ISS, caused by the unavailability of American manned spacecraft.




According to Rogozin, the full-time production capacity of RSC Energia is designed to produce four Unions per year. However, according to the head of Roskosmos, the plant has the opportunity to produce five.

We will use it

- stressed the functionary.

At the moment, it is known that in addition to the ships whose construction is planned as part of the Federal Space Program, two more MS Soyuzes will be made. The first, intended for space tourists, will be released in 2021. On the timing of the production of the second, for the delivery of astronauts to the ISS, the head of Roscosmos said nothing.

At the same time, Rogozin added that the Russian space agency will help its American colleagues deliver the crew to the International Space Station, despite the expired and non-renewed contract. The truth for this will have to, as the functionary put it, “squeeze” the Russian crews.

    What honor, what pride in the country? Here on the site there was a lot of joyful "squealing" from talkers that the United States does not succeed in terms of time, and the crews have already been scheduled for years. You were told that Rogozin would forget about his homeland for $. That's how they run the country, the coat of arms and the flag are not needed only $ !!!!

    And with what ....? They were warned, they said themselves. Well, let’s do it yourself, put on pots and jump on a trampoline. Why should we squeeze our? They will build it in 2 years, but for the sake of these ... to squeeze their programs? And there will be no backup ship if what happens in orbit?
    In general, Rogozin is now the second, after Chubais, character from below. It works in the USA.

    Right.
    Adversary - all the best.
    You give us sanctions - we will take you into space, you will torpedo Nord Stream 2, we will give you RD-180 engines.
    Immediately I remember the anecdote with the words "Dolbani across Voronezh. Ours are not there."
    And what is yours - they must be crushed, squeezed. Taxes, prices, etc.
