This small hole has caused some loss of oxygen and after which Russian Federation has said that this hole has been drilled deliberately by anyone for sabotage.

The ISS crew now has six members - three US astronauts, one German astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts.

It will enhance the reliability of ISS missions in case of any launch delays, Vlasov said. Now on the worldwide space station is six people, including three Americans. "Access to our ship is possible only with permission of our commander, but we can not exclude an unsanctioned access by the Americans". The media outlet notes that if the version of the Russian side is confirmed, it will be a "powerful blow" for Russian-American relations in space.

Earlier this week, Feustel said in an interview with ABC News that the crew had nothing to do with the hull breach and decompression. "I can unequivocally say that the crew had nothing to do with this on orbit, without a doubt, and I think it's actually a shame and somewhat embarrassing that anybody is wasting any time talking about something that the crew was involved in", he said. Because this would have required the departure of all six astronauts, since Soyuz can't depart without a full crew, the leak would have jeopardized any further reentry.

On Monday, 10 September 2018, a cosmonaut has shown off the hole that is present in the International Space Station.

The deputy prime minister said it was "shortsighted and dangerous" to speculate until the findings of the investigation were released.

"It's absolutely unacceptable to cast aspersions on either our cosmonauts or the American astronauts", Borisov told reporters on Wednesday. "The commission is working, and until the investigation is completed, it is by no means possible to pass such verdicts, we must wait for the final results of this work and to reveal the nature of this hole".
