Blue and yellow suits not associated with the Ukrainian flag: Russian Cosmonauts – National

When three Russian cosmonauts dressed in yellow flight suits with blue accents arrived on the International Space Station, some saw a message in them, wearing the colors of the Ukrainian flag. They shot that down on Saturday.

Cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev said that each crew chooses the color of the flight suits about six months before launch, since they have to be sewn individually. And since all three were Bauman Moscow State Technical University graduates, they chose the colors of their prestigious alma mater.

“There is no need to look for hidden signs or symbols in our uniform,” Artemyev said in a statement on the Russian Space Agency’s Telegram channel. “A color is just a color. It is in no way affiliated with Ukraine. Otherwise we would have to recognize the rights of the yellow sun in the blue sky.

“Even though we are in space these days, we are with our President and our people!”

Since Russia invaded Ukraine just over three weeks ago, many people have used the Ukrainian flag and colors to show their solidarity with the country.

Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Roscosmos space agency, reiterated Artemyev’s point in a tweet, posting an image of the university’s blue and gold crest.

Shortly after their arrival at the orbital station on Friday, Artemyev was asked about the flight suits. He said there was a lot of yellow material in stock and “that’s why we had to wear yellow”.
