Russia has decided to pull out of the International Space Station (ISS), the leader of the country's space agency Roscosmos revealed in an interview to the state media.
The move is blamed to be a result of the ongoing sanctions by the US and its key allies on the Kremlin government for its invasion of Ukraine. Exact timeline of Russia's departure from the ISS programme is yet to be revealed.
