Video cameras were delivered to the International Space Station to track events in the Russian segment. This was told by Vladimir Ustimenko, who is the head of the press service of the Roscosmos state corporation.
“As far as I know, they have already been delivered to the ISS, but when they are installed, there is no understanding yet. Until yesterday, one Russian cosmonaut worked on the ISS, he simply did not have time for it, ”the official shared his information.
It is worth saying that earlier in Roskosmos they announced their plans to install surveillance cameras at the station. An article was published in the Russian edition of Kommersant stating that Roskosmos turned to NASA with a request to provide recordings from American cameras. This followed after the investigation began of a sensational incident with a drilled hole in the skin of the Soyuz spacecraft. And there is still no official information that the National Administration agreed to this.
On the night of August 30, 2018, an air leak was recorded on the ISS, and the source was, as was soon able to be determined, in the Russian part of the station. The plating of the Soyuz MS-09 transport manned ship, which was docked in early summer, was damaged. After some disputes, it was decided to seal the hole with a sealant. Immediately they responded to the Energia Rocket and Space Corporation, where they produced an aircraft, saying that such a plan could not talk about a production marriage. Roscosmos began investigating the incident. Incidentally, NASA astronauts who allegedly could drill this unfortunate hole, following their unkind motives, fell into the circle of suspects.
