NASA astronaut suspected of deliberate damage of the Russian

The incident with the Russian spacecraft "Soyuz" began to take an unexpected turn. Russian Corporation "Roscosmos", which experts are investigating the appearance of the causes of depressurization of the Russian spacecraft, at the moment as priority versions considers the intentional damage of the spacecraft with American astronauts. About it reports "Kommersant" with reference to anonymous source in the Russian space Agency.

As a motive for the alleged sabotage of the assumption about the disease American astronaut and as a consequence the desire for early sending of a Soyuz back to Earth. If this version is confirmed, the Russian-American cooperation in space will be dealt a powerful blow, cast doubt on the possibility of implementing future joint space missions.

The Source said that the Commission investigating the incident concluded that damage to the inner lining of the "Union" was done already in space. At the same time, judging by the tracks next to the done hole, attempts to make the hull had a few. According to the assumptions involved in the investigation, such traces could occur due to the fact that the drills lacked focus (it is not under pressure), which is typical of the works in the condition of microgravity. In addition, the source did not exclude unauthorized entry of the Americans into the Russian ship.

The Head of "Roskosmos" Dmitry Rogozin the day before said that the Commission of the Russian space Corporation "Energia" was not able to find out the cause of the holes from the drill in the ship "Soyuz MS-09". According to Rogozin, "the situation was much more complicated." The head of the Roscosmos refused to comment on the theory that to drill the casing of the Russian spacecraft could one of the NASA astronauts.

According to Kommersant's information, representatives of "Roscosmos" has asked NASA copies of records of wearable video recorders astronauts and their medical records to verify his story. In case of refusal, "some additional questions about their involvement in the incident will have extra," said a source.
