Roscosmos doesn’t elaborate any measures to give a response to NASA, – Roscosmos Head Deputy Denis Lykov stated. We do not see any ground for it, – he said at the press conference in Moscow.

On April 2, NASA reported that it suspends projects with Russia due to the Ukraine situation.

The management wants to stop launching astronauts from Russian spaceports. NASA specialists at the same time were unsatisfied with this government’s decision specifying that scientific cooperation should lay beyond politics.

Russian vice Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin responsible for aerospace industry in Russia earlier reported that Russia-NASA cooperation in aerospace field was limited by ISS project only.

“NASA banned cooperation with Russia in all directions except the ISS, but we hadn’t any joint projects with NASA apart from ISS anyway”, – Vice Prime-Minister wrote  in his Twitter.
