Together, it is easier to tackle this task from an economic and technical perspective, he noted. Such problems are easier to solve together, using the talents of our scientists, Rogozin said. Such a project also interests the United States, he said. However, he did not mention a timetable.

Russia had already announced a mission to Venus last year. At that time, it declared that a probe could leave between 2027 and 2029. More recently, the United Arab Emirates declared that they wanted to explore the planet.
