US Space agency, NASA on 2 April 2014 announced that it had suspended majority of its ongoing engagement and ties with Russia, except the cooperation aboard the International Space Station. The suspension of the ties has happened due to the crisis in Ukraine that has been caused due to the violation of the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
