Rogozin commented on the possibility of sending US ships to the ISS


The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said that since 2020 two Soyuz spacecraft will be enough for the state corporation to send crews to the International Space Station (ISS) if astronauts go to the station on American ships. It is reported by RIA Novosti.

“If they do (the US will start sending crews to the ISS on their ships. - RT ), respectively, Roscosmos will need fewer ships to deliver our crews to the ISS. We need no more than two ships a year to solve our problems, ”Rogozin said.

He noted that the Americans expect to start flying on their Crew Dragon ships of SpaceX and Starliner from Boeing already in 2020, having decided to "their main problems" by the end of 2019.

He also added that in subsequent years the number of spaceships will increase again, as "tourists will go with whom there are already contracts."

Earlier it was reported that in 2020, Roscosmos will halve the number of manned flights to the ISS, and only two Soyuz spacecraft will be sent to the ISS.
