He further claimed that the person responsible for making the hole had a "faltering hand" based on nearby scuff marks that he claimed were likely produced when the drill slipped. "If a cosmonaut pulled this odd stunt-and that can't ruled out- it's really bad", Surayev said. It is known that NASA astronauts are actively working on the ISS, and in the case of the renewal of joint flights of Russian cosmonauts will fly to the station on the ships of the American Agency. Russian Federation and the usa are discussing the possibility to continue flights of global crews to the worldwide Space Station (ISS) after the start of the use by Americans of their own spaceships, said head of the Gagarin Research & Test Cosmonaut Training Center Pavel Vlasov in a conversation with reporters. "If this version is confirmed, then the Russian-American relations in space will be dealt a severe blow". "Access to our ship is possible only with permission of our commander, but we can not exclude an unsanctioned access by the Americans".
Earlier this week, Feustel said in an interview with ABC News that the crew had nothing to do with the hull breach and decompression. "In doing so, we assured the continued operation of the space station, we ensured the ability of our crew all to remain on orbit and continue doing the great work that we do.on the International Space Station".
Borisov stressed that the ISS crew responded to the discovery of the hole swiftly and professionally, telling journalists that outer space is no place for political disagreements.
The deputy prime minister said it was "shortsighted and dangerous" to speculate until the findings of the investigation were released. "It is absolutely unacceptable to cast a shadow over our cosmonauts or American astronauts, he said in a statement". We must wait for the final results of this work, before understanding the nature of this hole.
