Boeing to buy Ukraine-made rockets and engines

Ukraine and Boeing make a deal to buy rockets and booster engines made by Pivdenny and Yuzhmash plants, TCH reports Sept. 9.

Boeing will buy the goods on condition Ukraine does not cooperate with the countries under US sanctions, head of Ukraine space agency Luybomyr Sabodash says. 

Currently, the US is buying Russian boosters.

Ukrainian makers will supply boosters for Zenith and Antares rockets.

The memorandum with Boeing is to be signed late October- early November.
The United States is interested in cooperating with Ukraine in the Sea Launch program and will assist in creating a new satellite for Ukraine telecommunications program, Sabodash says.
