It was previously assumed that the mission would take place in 2027, but now the possibility of its realization a year earlier is being considered.

“We will try, maybe even shift it to the left – we have plans for 2026 – but for now it’s 2027,” Borisov said. He also noted that the possibility of early launch of automatic interplanetary stations Luna-26 and Luna-27 was also considered.

This statement follows the incident on August 19 when the Russian interplanetary automatic station Luna-25 entered an incorrect orbit and collided with the surface of the Moon.

The station, launched on August 11, was supposed to land in the Boguslavsky crater region near the Moon’s south pole.

These plans to postpone the launch date of Luna 26 demonstrate Roscosmos’s determination to accelerate the space program despite recent challenges. They also emphasize the importance of lunar exploration as part of Russia’s overall space exploration strategy.
