Luna 25 Mission
Russia’s Luna 25 is named as a successor to Luna 24 which landed on the moon back in 1976, but there’s no link here, it’s a vastly different spacecraft, completely different people involved and of course lacks critical partnerships that made the Soviet program successful (i.e. Ukraine). Over the years the Russian Luna program worked with Japan, India and Europe, but now all those collaborations are dead due to lack of funding, fading confidence in Russia’s competence and sanctions in the wake of Russia’s invasion of foreign territories.
