Ukraine is interested in developing cooperation with Russia in space industry, in particular under the Dnipro program, and in participating in the creation of super-heavy launch vehicle on the basis of the Zenith carrier rocket and in constructing of the cosmodrome "Vostochyi". This was announced by vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Yuri Boiko in interview with Channel 5, commenting on the meeting of Ukrainian and Russian delegations, chaired by Vice-Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Rogozin, which took place last week in Moscow.
"The launched projects should be developed. This is particularly true of the Dnipro program - a joint missile launch. In addition, there is possible participation of Ukraine in the construction of heavy missiles, as well as in construction of the cosmodrome in the Far East," Boiko explained.
He noted that the project to create a super-heavy launcher on the basis of Zenith carrier rocket is ambitious and will significantly contribute to the development of the industry. "This is a large-scale program. It will refer to several thousand people in Ukraine and a number of enterprises. This will give impetus to the development of the entire space industry," Boiko noted.
Commenting on the prospects of participation of Ukrainian enterprises in the construction of the cosmodrome "Vostochyi" from the ground up, the vice premier noted that Ukraine already has the experience, as it is taking part in the construction of the spaceport in Brazil. "Situation in the Russian Far East is the same as those in Brazil, when we started construction of the spaceport from scratch. Our experience is a guarantee that we will be useful," he said.
