Russia will conduct a technical inspection of the International Space Station and will make a decision on withdrawing from the project from 2025, reported TASS News Agency on Sunday.
"Lately, reports about technical malfunctions have been coming more often. In order to avoid any risks in case of accidents, it's necessary to carry out a technical inspection of the station," said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov.
"After this, a decision should be made," Borisov added.
On April 12, the country's involvement in the ISS project was discussed at a meeting attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
