“The layout shows the station immediately of the second stage. It assumes that not only the base, scientific and energy, nodal and gateway modules are in orbit, but also the target, production modules, as well as a service platform”, - a TASS correspondent said from the scene.

On the mock-up, the Soyuz, Progress, as well as the promising Eagle ships were docked to the station. The timing and cost of the project are not announced. At the moment, the preliminary design of the station is underway. At the forum, Energia Corporation spoke about the capabilities of the station.

A month earlier, the head of Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, announced the decision to withdraw the Russian Federation from the ISS project after 2024, but later the state corporation clarified that this could happen in 2025, 2028 or 2030 year. He noted that in this case all obligations to partners will be observed. Borisov stressed that by the time the Russian side withdraws from the ISS project, the Russian Orbital Station will already be formed.
