I’ll guess whoever mentioned 2024 yesterday has now had a quiet discuss with the individuals who truly are concerned in Russia’s ISS commitments on the day-to-day degree and realized a half-day information cycle announcement wasn’t price strolling away from Russia’s stake in probably the most costly scientific endeavours of all time, of which Russia has already put in an enormous share of the whole price.
The 2028 date is a bullshit climb down from 2024 with out admitting somebody was speaking out of their ass. In the event that they had been actually giving up the Russian Orbital Phase in 18 months, folks want to start out engaged on that handover now. Saying 2028 means no work must be accomplished now, and this may all be quietly forgotten by the point precise handover work wants doing.
