NASA’s budget for 2022 does not provide for the purchase of additional seats on Russian Soyuz spacecraft for flights to the International Space Station, but the United States hopes to continue flights on mutual exchange, a NASA spokesman said. “

This budget does not contain plans to buy seats on the Soyuz, but we still have an interchange agreement on your (Russian) and our ships, so there are no plans to buy, but we have plans to use this ship nevertheless,” he said at a briefing on the publication of the NASA budget request for the fiscal year 2022.
