The diplomat said that Kyiv and Washington have “serious developments” on the interaction for the launch, reports TASS referring to the Ukrainian “the Fifth channel”.

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.

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.

The largest Ukrainian aerospace enterprise “Yuzhmash” by mid-2015 as reduced production compared to the same period in 2013 for the 17th time.

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.
