The Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft landed in the steppes of Kazakhstan on March 30
MOSCOW, 11 June. /TASS/. The American company Axiom Space paid in rubles for the flight of NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hay on the Russian Soyuz. This was announced on Saturday by the Director General of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin.

"They were exactly a month late. There was a delay in payment, but nevertheless the funds came in full," Rogozin said on the air of the Rossiya-24 TV channel .

To a clarifying question whether the amount was transferred in rubles, the head of Roscosmos answered in the affirmative. "We agreed that we only accept rubles," he said.

In April, Rogozin said on Channel One that the American company Axiom Space, due to logistical problems, had not yet paid 2 billion rubles for the flight of NASA astronaut Vande Hai.

The descent vehicle of the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft carrying cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov, Pyotr Dubrov and astronaut Mark Vande Hai landed in the steppes of Kazakhstan on March 30. Prior to their return to Earth, a number of American media outlets stated that Russia might leave Vande Hay on the ISS due to sanctions imposed over the situation in Ukraine.
