On Sunday, August 20, 2023, Russia announced that their Luna-25 spacecraft had disappeared after hitting the Moon and disintegrating after they wanted to send the Indians to explore the South end of the Moon.

It was planned that the spacecraft would be the first to reach the South end of the Moon, but the Russian plan failed the spacecraft that was about to fly where it was supposed to deliver the Indian spacecraft. It is said that the spacecraft was intended to conduct research in that period of the Moon, scientists believe that part of the Moon may contain water ice, and precious stones.

Roscosmos, Russia's state space agency, said the spacecraft lost contact on Saturday afternoon, with initial indications that the 800kg spacecraft "was dead after impact with the lunar surface". Roscosmos says that a special commission will look into the reason for the loss of communication.
