Venera D

Venera D (2020 concept) [Roskosmos]

Venus-D is a planned Russian Venus lander mission featuring a long-duration lander.

The mission was initially planned as a joint Russia-US venture. In 2020 however, Roskosmos announced that the Venera-D mission was going to be an independent national project and was not expected to attract significant international cooperation. In June 2021, NASA said that the US space agency was ready to discuss further plans for Venus exploration with Russia. A proposed NASA contribution was cancelled by Roskosmos in February 2022 because of sanctions imposed on Russia due to the Russian invasion in Ukraine.
