With regard to possible risks to the crew when landing the new manned spacecraft in the Pacific Ocean, please be advised of the following: Certain media took notice of some statements from an employee of RSC Energia who was taking part in the youth forum Engineers of the Future 2019. While not being a developer of the new manned system, our colleague, in a dialog with the students, made an inadvertent overstatement, which gave rise to unhealthy response and speculation. In this connection, we reaffirm our commitment to crew safety as the unconditional number-one priority of our manned spaceflight.
