He said that Ukraine was a special partner and an integral part of Russia’s space industry supply chain.
“Our cooperation with Ukraine’s Yuzhmash enterprise has not stopped,” Komarov said. “We have contracts in force and we comply fully with our obligations. We hope that these obligations will also be carried out in the following years.”
“The possibility of further space cooperation with Ukraine depends on the fulfilment of this condition,” he added. “It is the main criterion for us for further cooperation and for determining those partners we will work with in the future.”
