MOSCOW, April 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Severe situation around the Ukrainian space industry is likely to result in a breakup of cooperation with Russia in this sphere, Director General of the Russian United Rocket and Space Corporation Igor Komarov said on Friday.
“In the near future, organization of new projects will be considered,” Komarov told the Rossiya 24 television. “We are tasked to modernize production drastically so with regard to this task we will have to choose, and not only we, with whom we should move forward together and how.”
“And what worries us in this situation is that if a gap appears in our relations with Ukraine in the near future, it will have irreversible consequences for cooperation that will linger for 15 to 20 years, in the course of which they [the relations] will be hard to restore,” he said.
“New partners will be found, hard work will be done and investments will flow into some other area that isn't contingent on cooperation with our Ukrainian partners,” Komarov said.
