Since 1984 Russia has sent probes for the planet.
Recent uncovered from Venus turns the planet into a great focus of attention in the scientific community, increasing the level of interest in exploration. Therefore, the Russian space agency Roscosmos has come to delineate the plans for missões to Venus, classifying it as a “Russian planet”.
“Continuing to explore Venus is on our plans. First, we will have the Venera-D project in cooperation with Americans. We are also considering our own mission to Venus. We consider Venus a Russian planet, therefore we must not go back. Projects from missions to Venus are included in the government program for space exploration in Russia for 2021-2030 ”, affirmed the leader of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin.
Rogozin’s affirmation must be related as a fact to Russia sending probes to Venus since 1984, aiming for a historical exploration of the non-planet country.
