Russia dismisses reports that cosmonauts’ yellow and blue flight suits referred to Ukraine

Russia’s space agency Roscosmos has dismissed reports that three of its cosmonauts wore yellow and blue flight suits on the International Space Station in support of Ukraine. 

The cosmonauts — Oleg Artemyev, Denis Matveev and Sergey Korsakov — wore the brightly colored flight suits, which were yellow with blue patches similar to the colors of the Ukrainian flag, as they boarded the space station on Friday (March 18). With Russia currently in the midst of an brutal war on Ukraine, the cosmonauts’ choice of clothing raised questions among the media (including here on Space.com) on whether they were showing support for the Ukrainian people.
