Rogozin: 99% probability ExoMars 2022 mission won't happen due to ESA's destructive position

MOSCOW. March 10 (Interfax) - The launch of the Russian-European spacecraft ExoMars 2022 will most likely not take place this year due to the destructive position of the European Space Agency (ESA), Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin said.

"I am so skeptical that I believe there is a 99.9% probability that we are not flying. Due to the destructive positon of the European Space Agency," Rogozin said at a meeting with State Duma members from the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), when asked about the prospects of the ExoMars mission launch.
