NASA is requesting Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos to develop the Soyuz spacecraft version for flights to the Moon, Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV Channel on Thursday, TASS reports.

"They are requesting us to develop the Soyuz spacecraft that could fly to the Moon and back to create a backup space transport system," Rogozin said.

NASA also insists that Russia should continue delivering US astronauts aboard Soyuz spaceships to the International Space Station, the Roscosmos chief said.
