Answering a question from one of the journalists about how the events in Ukraine influenced the relations between the two departments, he said that professional relations between NASA and Roscosmos are unchanged.
“The professional relationship between astronauts and cosmonauts on board the station, as well as the professional relationship between mission control centers in Houston and Moscow, remained unchanged. And that’s what we expect.”
Recall that earlier it became known that the Russian state corporation had stopped supplying rocket engines manufactured by the Energomash association to the United States. Also in February, United States President Joe Biden announced sanctions against the Russian space program.
