We are talking about the Soyuz MS-23 spacecraft, which is supposed to take Sergei Prokopyev, Dmitry Petelin and Frank Rubio to Earth.

"Until we are convinced and get to the place of a possible breakdown [on the Progress MS-21 ship], the launch of the Soyuz MS-23 ship in unmanned mode has been postponed until the first decade of March at most", - said the head of the state corporation Yuri Borisov.

On Saturday, February 11, it became known that a depressurization occurred on the Progress MS-21 cargo ship docked to the International Space Station - a few hours after docking.

At the beginning of the month, it was reported that the Soyuz MS-22, whose radiator was damaged, would return to Earth in March this year without astronauts on board.
