After years of negotiations, Russian and European space officials

Not a bad thing considering international tensions.
By the way, as said in the article, two manned vehicles are better than one...

Let's hope that EXPERT will be approved at the forthcoming ESA conference. Even unmanned, that would be a useful foot-on-the-door, a way of forcing the decision later...
