The Ukraine’s Embassy in US greeted the bill submitted this week by Senator John McCain and Congressman Kevin McCarthy that prohibits the use of rocket engines by Russian manufactures in US.

Ukrainian diplomats hope that, if approved, the law will provide additional opportunities for Ukrainian space industry to deepen cooperation with the United States on transparent market conditions.

The Ukraine’s Ambassador to US Valeriy Chaly discussed with the President of the World Congress of Ukrainians Yevgeniy Choliem and the Director of the Information Department of Ukrainian Committee of America Michael Savkivym the plans to strengthen practical cooperation with the Ukrainian community in the US in order to protect the Ukraine’s national interests in the international arena.

Among other things, the parties agreed to coordinate their work and jointly conduct public events on a wide range of issues: opposition to Russian aggression in Donbas and occupation of Crimea, enhancing the Americans’ awareness with objective information about the formation of the Ukrainian state in the twentieth century as part of an information campaign on the occasion of 25th anniversary of Ukrainian independence.
