Original Message QUOTE(S)
The previous head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, had predicted that the ISS, which NASA plans to operate until 2030, would “fall apart” by that time unless “huge amounts of money” are invested in its repair.

But efforts to keep the station in orbit are no longer effective for Russia due to the current geopolitical environment, he pointed out.

AND

When it gets right down to it, it would appear that America is a "paper space power," long on chatter and short on the nuts and bolts. We're effectively still playing around with caravels and galleys while the rest have moved on to frigates and ships-of-the-line.
In short, we're falling way behind in the public face of space, and that might be an indicator that we're falling behind in the more secretive aspects as well. After all, when corruption reaches the point it has in the USSA, with a grifter in the White House due to massive election fraud, and who owes much of his personal wealth to deals made with the Communist Chinese and Ukrainians, and who thus could be viewed as a national security risk if not threat, then those dollars no longer buy very much
