China and Russia have agreed to discuss “in detail” the implementation of a lunar base.
“I will have a detailed discussion with our Chinese counterparts before the end of May,” Dmitry Rogozin, Roscosmos’ CEO, said. “I’ll be conducting a thorough talk with our Chinese partners in this area.”
Russia and China’s growing cooperation in space reflects the strengthening of their bond as they continue to clash with the United States and its Western allies.
In recent months, Russia and the West’s space relations have deteriorated drastically. In February, in response to Western economic sanctions on Russia, the Russian government threatened to destroy the International Space Station by ending its supply of satellite propulsion technology and resources that were needed to keep it in orbit. The saga culminated with Russia canceling its commitment to the International Space Station so long as sanctions stay in place.
For years, American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts have worked side-by-side aboard the International Space Station, but the International Space Station’s role as a symbol of peace between the two countries may be coming to an end.
Even so, Russian cosmonauts are currently aboard the International Space Station and will continue doing research according to the government’s timeline.
“We should not hurry now and declare our position,” Rogozin said in a TASS interview. “The future of the International Space Station will be decided to a significant extent by the evolving situation both in Russia and around it.”
Earlier this week, a crew of European and American astronauts arrived at the International Space Station, where Russian cosmonauts carried out a spacewalk that lasted 7 hours and 42 minutes. The Soviet-era “Victory Banner” was used during the spacewalk to display the Victory Banner that first flew in Berlin at the conclusion of World War Two.
This goes to show that the American establishment’s ongoing pushing for war has backfired by causing more nations to band together against the globalists who rule over America and much of the world. Should Americans feel threatened by a Russia-China alliance? The answer is, maybe.
