The Russian space agency on Saturday denied Western media reports that Russian astronauts affiliated with the International Space Station wore yellow uniforms in support of Ukraine.
“Sometimes it’s yellow … only yellow,” the Russian Federal Space Agency’s press service told its Telegram channel.
“The new crew’s air uniforms are made in the colors of the logo of Bauman Moscow State Technical University, from which all three pioneers graduated … it is crazy to imagine the Ukrainian flag everywhere and everywhere,” he added.
Dmitry Rokosin, director general of the Russian Federal Space Agency, said in his personal telegram channel that Russian astronauts have no sympathy for Ukrainian nationalists.
During a press conference broadcast live from the International Space Station on Friday, the mission commander asked senior astronaut Oleg Artemyev about clothing. That’s why we had to wear the yellow airplane uniform. “
The director general of the Russian Federal Space Agency said that US sanctions on Russia in retaliation for the invasion could destroy the joint operation of the International Space Station and cause the station to fall out of orbit.
NASA officials said the U.S. and Russian team members were aware of what was happening on the ground but their mission was not affected by geopolitical tensions.
