Taking into consideration the fact that Russia is still violating Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity NASA stops most joint projects, – official notice on NASA’s webpage in Facebook states. At the same time the management points out that these measures won’t affect Russian-American work onboard the ISS.
