Russia to cease space station cooperation

The country will not extend cooperation over the International Space Station due to recent US sanctions.

    Amid deteriorating relations over Ukraine, Moscow has told Washington that it will not extend cooperation over the International Space Station.

    Instead, Russia plans to concentrate on its own space projects.

    The move came after the US placed sanctions on high-tech equipment that could help Russia's military.
