Despite the exacerbation of relations between Russia and the Ukraine cooperation in the field of mutually beneficial space projects remains stable.  The cooperation on Dnepr program is a good example to prove this fact.

KazEOSat space device (Kazakhstan) will be the main payload; apart from this device Deimos-2 satellite (Spain), TabletSat-Aurora (Russia), Hodoyoshi-3 and Hodoyoshi-4 (Japan), SaudiSat-4 (Saudi Arabia), etc. will be launched to the space.

Dnepr is a 3-stage liquid fuel booster. Its first and second stages are the nominal stags of RS-20 intercontinental ballistic missile (SS-18 “Satana” according to NATO classification). Dnepr’s launching weight amounts to 210 tons. More than 20 of Dnepr boosters have been launched since 1999; the boosters orbited more than 60 satellites.
