Roscosmos suspends cooperation with the ISS, said the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin. According to Rogozin, Roscosmos will also suspend cooperation with NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
The Russian space director said that Roscosmo’s proposals on when to end cooperation on the International Space Station with the US, Canadian, EU, and Japanese space agencies would soon be brought to the attention of the Russian authorities.
Specific proposals of the country’s space agency on the timing of the completion of cooperation within the framework of the ISS with the space agencies of the United States, Canada, the European Union, and Japan will soon be submitted to the leadership of Russia.
The head of his space agency said the U.S., Canada, European Union, and Japan sanctions “are designed to stop the financial, economic and productive activities of our high-tech companies” and that their goal is “to strangle the Russian economy.” Plunge our people into despair and starvation and bring our nation to its knees.
The head of the Russian space agency has previously said that illegal sanctions could “disrupt” the U.S.-Russian partnership on the International Space Station. Dmitry Rogozin reiterated that “normal relations between the International Space Station and other joint (space) project partners can only be restored if the sanctions are lifted completely and unconditionally”, calling the sanctions illegal. In a tweet, Rogozin said a partnership would be possible only if the sanctions were “unconditionally lifted”.
Russia is suspending its cooperation with the International Space Station (ISS), according to Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russian space agency Roscosmos. The country will also suspend its partnership with NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), Rogozin said.
Newsweek and others first reported the story.
In a series of tweets written in Russian on Saturday, Rogozin said: “I believe that the restoration of normal relations between partners in the International Space Station and other joint projects is possible only with the complete and unconditional lifting of illegal sanctions.” “Reporting by MSN.com“
I believe any American that follows what we do in space on the ISS expected this to take place. It was just a matter of time before Putin would once again strike out against the US and its allies. He has played his hand as one that having Sanctions on him and his country didn’t bother or hurt him. The time I believe is coming when the US and its allies will have to show even more power against him.
There are so many experts saying that before the war with Ukraine would draw America into the war and nuclear arms would be used, they would either overthrow Putin and remove him or even kill him to remove him.
Robert English, a professor of Central European Studies at the University of Southern California, believes Putin will face growing opposition at home. “I think Putin’s future is grim. I think, at home, he will be under the constant threat of opposition, possibly of a coup, some kind of power grab to remove him because even his closest allies are now seeing the problem,
” English said. “And if they gain less by staying loyal than they would if he’s replaced, it’s just a matter of how to do it.” Even once Russia’s war in Ukraine has concluded and Putin is no longer in power, the reputational damage of the invasion “will cripple Russia for a generation to come,” according to English. “Reporting by Foxnews.com”
America Needs to stop depending on Russia for our space travels to the ISS. The United States has a really good company working on just that, SpaceX. We need to take back our respect even in the far reaches of space itself. Someone needs to dominate. Let’s gain the title of the most powerful nation even off-planet to the stars.
God Bless America, God Bless the Veterans
