Roscosmos CEO Dmitri Rogozin called on the Space Center to include Kikina in one of the next crews of the Soyuz spacecrafts to fly to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2022, a source from that agency told Sputnik news agency.

With her test cosmonaut title since 2014, 36-year-old Kikina said that she did not know whether she was going to be included in the crew yet, in a recent interview for this national media outlet.

Since that same year, Russia has not sent women to space, a mission previously completed by Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in the world to leave Earth, and Svetlana Savitskaya, Elena Kondakova and Elena Serova.
