Alexei Krasnov, the chief of the federal space agency Roscosmos’s human spaceflights programs, announced this on Jan. 5.

"Talks have been uneasy thus far. You can see what is going on in the world economy. Such programs require a government-approved funding, which is the most difficult goal for all of us. It is very difficult to give the go-ahead to billions in funding required to accomplish flights beyond low orbits amid such serious economic instability. We have not forged a final decision yet," he said.

However, an international working group has worked out a universal space exploration roadmap in an effort that involved not only the partner nations in the International Space Station project (ISS) – Russia, the United States, Canada, Japan and the European Space Agency, but also China, India, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and other countries. "This is not merely an ISS club, but a broader project," Krasnov said.
