MOSCOW, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Roscosmos space agency is not preparing to retaliate against NASA in connection with the latter's imposition of sanctions, deputy head of Roskosmos Denis Lyskov said on Tuesday.
"There are no reasons for it," Lyskov said. "Our NASA colleagues have confirmed that no bans apply to international events."
"All the projects that have significance for Roscosmos are running in international format in the first place. NASA sanctions do not apply to them," he reiterated.
The International Space Station is not a bilateral program, although the USA and Russia are among the key participants. "Suspending work within the framework of this program would result in serious consequences for everybody," Lyskov said.
