Ukraine Prepared For Joint Space Program With Turkey

Click to see full-size image

Ukraine can carry out many joint projects with Turkey in the field of space as in the defense industry, the head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine said.

In an interview with Anadolu Agency, Volodymyr Taftay evaluated Ukraine’s space program and the possibilities of cooperation between Ankara and Kiev in the field of space.

Kiev is quite open to cooperation, and together with Ankara they could reach success in space.

He also said they would like to visit the Turkish Space Agency in the second half of this year and discuss opportunities for cooperation.

“I strongly believe that cooperation is much stronger than being alone in any project. Especially with long-term partners like Turkey.

“Turkey has a very advanced industry, so I am completely sure we can engage in joint projects,” he added.

Noting that Turkey is a priority partner for Ukraine, Taftay said he believes that with the consolidation of cooperation, a space rocket or satellite co-produced by Ukraine and Turkey can be sent into space.

On the project of sending Turkish astronauts into space in line with Turkey’s National Space Program, he said that sending astronauts into space is a kind of test and self-realization because the space industry has to go through many new procedures to be able to send astronauts.

“I think it’s a very great, emotional project for the Turkish people to have their own astronauts flying to space,” he added.

Taftay said the Ukrainian Space Agency’s first priority is to launch the Sich 2-1 satellite together with the SpaceX company at the end of 2021 and the second priority is to implement a new space program.

He said Ukraine’s 5th National Space Program ended in 2017, noting that the new program he prepared after taking office in March this year is in the process of being approved.

These reports are in line with the recent reality that Ukraine is emerging as a key “blood donor” to the Turkish war industry, assuring a mass supply of its military technology to as many spheres as Ankara needs.

Now, space technology is also becoming part of that trend.

Where Ukraine lags, Turkey comes to contribute, and where Turkey lags, Ukraine comes to “fill the gaps” with the technology it has, as it is a country that, during the period of the Soviet Union, had a very developed technology and scientific potential. Its industrial facilities in such areas as aircraft production, as well as anti-tank ammunition, battle tanks or the space exploration, were maintained and even developed after the dissolution of the USSR.

Turkey is playing with fire.
Turkey is trying to make allies, but still the government of Turkey is ruled by Criminals Mafia

No Peace for the Bullies

Turkey playing with fire.
Sorry buddy, but the tech gap you enjoyed for decades will definitely wane over the newt 1 to 2 decades. There can be no stopping it. Either accept reality or face the consequences of arrogance. Ukraine and Turkey are a perfect match in defense sector

None of you

Ha ha ha … you have no idea what is happening in Ukraine and you talking about technology gap…
When Turkey will reach the level of technology wich West has today we will have laser weapons.
So still Turkey will be 60 years backwards with their Muslim religious politic leaders..

Like the disgusting radical Islamist Erdogan who disregards women as second class citizen and many more islamist ideology.

We are in the process of completing a non nuclear bomb but with the power of 10 time more powerful than Tsar bomb.

KnowTheJew

The Jews are now using the Ukraine as a means by which to infiltrate and destroy Turkey under the guise of a “space program.” That’s better.

Lest it be forgotten that the Jews toppled the government of the Ukraine and installed one of their own over a non-Jew country, then instigated a civil war, before gave the Ukrainians cookies to sooth their misery.

ukrop can not into space

Ahahahahahaha

No Peace for the Bullies

Things will continue to change. That’s how it’s been from the beginning. Established world powers will continue to see their power wane as new powers emerge. The tech gap closes pretty fast and levels up with those initially considered inferior.

None of you

I can imagine to see Turkish islamist on the moon killing themselves for The gay Muhammad 🤣🤣🤣🤣 and their beliefs
