Ukraine has no intentions to sue the New York Times for the recent article about the alleged supplies of Ukrainian rocket engines to the North Korea. Yuriy Radchenko, the acting head of Ukraine’s state space agency said that at a briefing on Tuesday.

‘The U.S. is our strategic partner in space programs. We cooperate in the Antares initiative, in the project involving Boeing company, et cetera. We are not interested in making these relations worse, when it comes to the governmental agencies. Besides, it is not about the official position of the Department of the State or NASA; it is a point of view of a reporter who can express it any way he wants to. Perhaps, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine will react to this situation,’ Radchenko said, adding that the state space agency considers making the Ukrainian point of view public via the New York Times.
