Russian space station proposal, Nov 2014 (Kommersant) Russian media reported Monday that Russia was considering the development of its own space station and could withdraw from the International Space Station after 2020. According to the reports, the Russian government was considering development of a station that would be placed in a higher inclination than the ISS, allowing it to overfly more of Russia. The station would make use of modules planned for development and installation on the ISS. If developed, reports indicated that Russia would no longer be involved in operations of the ISS. However, many of those reports cautioned there was little evidence Russia had the funding or interest to develop such a station.
