State Department denies instructions to suspend cooperation with Roscosmos

April 4, the US State Department has dismissed reports saying that it had instructed NASA and other agencies to suspend cooperation with Russia.

“I know that there were mistaken statements yesterday that the Department of State called NASA to stop cooperation with Russia. Though I like to make orders to NASA, our department didn’t make such order,” Marie Harf, representative of the Department of State, said.

In addition, the statement about suspending cooperation between NASA and Roscosmos caused criticism from a number of NASA experts. In their point of view, such a decision may negatively impact the national space program and the ISS project.
