A Russian spacecraft has lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan carrying two Russian astronauts and an American astronaut to join the crew of the International Space Station, as live TV images showed.

Russia’s Roscosmos space agency said the Soyuz MS-24 spacecraft arrived at the ISS carrying American astronaut Loral O’Hara and Russia’s Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub.

They will join the current crew of NASA astronauts Jasmine Moghbeli and Frank Rubio, Russian cosmonauts Dmitry Petelin, Konstantin Borisov and Sergei Prokopyev, as well as Andreas Mogensen of Denmark and Satoshi Furukawa of Japan.

O’Hara and Chubb are on their first spaceflight while Kononenko is on his fifth spaceflight.

Russia’s space program suffered a major setback last month when its Luna-25 spacecraft crashed during an attempt to land near the moon’s south pole in the country’s first lunar mission in 47 years.

The ISS is one of the few international projects on which the United States and Russia still cooperate closely.

Relations in other regions have broken down since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
