NASA suspends non-ISS cooperation with Russia
Posted: Thu, Apr 3, 2014, 8:56 AM ET (1256 GMT)
NASA In a largely symbolic move, NASA announced late Wednesday that it was suspending cooperation with the Russian government on space topics, with the exception of operations of the International Space Station. In a statement posted Wednesday evening, NASA said it was "suspending the majority of its ongoing engagements" with the Russian government, citing the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine. Operations of the ISS, however, are specifically excepted from that action, and will continue normally. That announcement came after an internal NASA memo leaked earlier in the day announcing the suspension. NASA did not enumerate which activities are affected by the suspension, but there is little cooperation between NASA and the Russian space agency Roscosmos beyond its ISS work.
