Russia wants to send a manned mission to the Moon from 2031

Russia wants to send the first Russian manned mission to the Moon from 2031, date from which similar launches will be made every year, according to a document by the company Tsniimash, the main research institute of the Russian space agency Roscosmos.
"The objective of the mission is to send a crew to the Moon," says the document, which has been accessed by the Russian agency RIA Nóvosti and also says that in 2032 is planned to launch a lunar heavy vehicle with a second crew, which must "test the means of transport on the lunar surface.
A year later the Russian cosmonauts would carry out the tests of the robotic equipment, as well as long-distance routes with the rover, and in 2034 the construction of a Russian lunar base would begin, according to the document.
Each expedition will have two launches of superheavy rockets, one of which will place the ship with the crew in orbit, while the second will send the landing and take-off system and other equipment to space.
The manned missions will be preceded by test launches in 2028 and 2029. EFE
