The Russian space agency is back in action after a few days of silence. But, it's all bad with what came back and hopefully, it doesn't happen. Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency, continues to threaten the International Space Station (ISS).
The state-controlled Russian media (of course) RIA Novosti has released a bizarre video in which Russian astronauts say goodbye to American astronauts, and then the international space station separates.
Russian gov't-controlled RIA Novosti @rianru posted a video on Telegram made by @Roscosmos where cosmonauts say goodbye to Mark Vande Hei on #ISS, depart, and then the Russian segment detaches from the rest of ISS. @Rogozin is clearly threatening the ISS program. #NASA #Ukraine pic.twitter.com/fj2coK1xR1— NASA Watch (@NASAWatch) March 5, 2022
How is Russia threatening the USA?
It is not yet known. But Russia can make huge mistakes, especially in space. After Russia's invasion of Ukraine, threats to Russia's space program in partnership with the United States began.
What we see in the videos so far are computer simulations and we would not want them to turn into reality. Russia can go to great lengths to break away from its entire partnership with the United States in space.
There is no evidence that Russia will ally with anyone else in space. There are indeed rumors that Russia would ally with China to make a space station of their own. However, the current situation is not the best, and if Russia no longer has astronauts on the space station, it ends its collaborations with the USA, part of the Russian space sector will suffer.
We don't know how many of these videos and information are just threats and how many of them are in Russia's plan. However, it is not good what Russia looks like in these videos. Russia has also threatened to drop the ISS on Earth. Of course, not everywhere, Russia said it could fall on the United States or Europe because of sanctions against (Russia).
If it fall on any of the continents, it could do a lot of casualties and it could start a world war.
We hope that Russia will come to its senses and leave the ISS in orbit, that only in 2030-2031, due to its old age, NASA will bring it to Earth, falling under control in an ocean and in no case on a continent.
