Its happening again, it seems.

Just a Drip

Losing air on a space station sounds perilous, but Roscosmos maintains that the crewmembers are safe and that the situation is under control. The leak is very small, it says, and backup systems are in place if needed.

“We have had this leak for quite some time, the rate is very small, nothing has happened,” Roscosmos Program Director Sergei Krikalev told the Russian news agency Interfax. “One of the leaks was found and reduced, but it still remains.”
