Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft

The seat of US astronaut Frank Rubio was moved from the faulty Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft to a US Crew Dragon spacecraft to ensure his safe return to Earth in the event of an emergency, the Russian space agency Roscosmos said on Wednesday.

"Due to the technical condition of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft, a lodgement of NASA astronaut Frank Rubio was dismantled from the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft and moved to the Crew Dragon spacecraft on January 18 to ensure safe return of the ISS crew (International Space Station) back to Earth in case of an accident before the arrival of Soyuz MS-23," the statement read.

Roscosmos noted that the seats of all three crew members, Rubio, Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitry Petelin, will be transferred to the Soyuz MS-23 in February to bring them back to Earth.
