Russia says it will withdraw from the space station "after 2024," signaling at least a few more years of continued cooperation with U.S. It is cooperation, though, with an increasingly unreliable partner, says Frida Ghitis. Ghitis: Despite Russia’s talk, ISS operations are stable for now; NASA should prioritize making contingency plans for keeping station operational without Russian support. She says it's unfortunate that relations between the two countries have deteriorated to a point where such hope is in jeopardy; NASA must be guided by pragmatism, Ghitis says. Despite Russia's talk of leaving the space space station since 2021, it's safe for now, but it's unlikely it will be a long-term partner.
