Ukraine to Partner U.S. In Space

Ukraine has been invited to partner the United States in the exploration of space, Interfax-Ukraine news agency said Monday.

Ukraine and the United States will extend their cooperation in space exploration as part of a new international partnership program that America's National Aeronautics and Space Administration is developing as a way of putting a new U.S. space strategy into practice, the Ukrainian National Space Agency said according to the Interfax-Ukraine report.

In the course of a seminar in Washington on Nov. 15-17 arranged by NASA, Ukraine was invited to take an equal part in shaping a new international space strategy and mechanisms for putting it into effect, the Ukrainian agency told Interfax-Ukraine.
