Kazakhstan and Ukraine signed a space cooperation agreement during Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s recent visit to Ukraine.
“It [Cosmotrans] used to be a Ukrainian-Russian project, but now it is a tripartite project between Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan,” Klyuyev said.
The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers also expects to sign contracts with Kazakhstan to deliver Ukrainian-built An-148, An-158 and An-74 airplanes, he said.
