Ukraine and the United States in the near future will launch a rocket in the framework of cooperation in the space sphere, said the Ukrainian Ambassador in Washington Valeriy Chaly. “I hope that this is now not to be such a sensation,” he said.

According to the Ambassador, Ukrainian authorities could not hold a joint meeting with the Americans on cooperation in the space sector for the last eight years, however, the meeting was held two weeks ago.
It is worth noting that before the change of government the main partner of Ukraine in the space sphere was Russia, but the cooperation was in fact suspended in 2014.
Over a year ago, the Ukrainian government denounced the Treaty on military-technical cooperation of 1993. In turn, in early 2016, the Roscosmos stated intention to get rid of dependence on Ukrainian components of production.
In early June, the head of the State space Agency of Ukraine Lyubomyr Sabadosh recognized that due to the rupture of relations with Russia, the space industry of the country lost millions of dollars.Related posts:
