According to the state corporation’s message, the station’s deployment is scheduled to begin in 2027. The first stage will include the launch of a scientific and energy module. By 2030, Roscosmos expects to create the core of the new station, which will consist of four modules. It is planned to launch a universal center, a gateway, a base, and scientific and energy modules into orbit.

In addition, between 2031 and 2033, Roscosmos intends to implement the second stage with the expansion of the orbital station by docking two target modules.

The company claims that its own station will help to continue the manned program after leaving the ISS. According to Roscosmos, the project will cost 600 billion rubles.

In early 2022, the head of the corporation, Borisov, informed Vladimir Putin about the withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the ISS after 2024. In the spring of 2023, Borisov informed the president about extending the operation of the Russian segment of the ISS until 2028.

On August 11, 2023, Russia launched a mission to the Moon for the first time in 47 years: the Soyuz-2.1b rocket, which was to carry an automatic station, was successfully launched from the Vostochny Cosmodrome. However, due to abnormal engine operation, the device collided with the Moon and crashed.

Roscosmos then asked “not to turn the failed moon landing into a tragedy” and allowed the mission to be repeated in 2025-2026.
