It was already anticipated that as ISRO continued preparation for Gaganyaan project, the spacesuit astronaut wear may come from Russia. And now it is confirmed that Russia will be offering its semi-cryogenic rocket engine technology to India under the "Make-in-India' program. "The rocket engines could be made in India and used in our rockets," Mr. Sivan said.

Both countries will discuss in the sphere of piloted space flights, satellite navigation, and engine technology. As per reports, the countries are to negotiate the contracts for the supply of crew seats, windows, and spacesuits for India's human space mission named Gaganyaan.
