Ukraine has the potential for the development of the space industry, and the Government is working to elaborate a long-term policy. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman remarked during A Question Time at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Friday.
"Staffing policy is one thing, and another thing is building a strategy for the development of the space industry. Now we are working to shape the prospects for the years to come - the space sphere cannot demonstrate the result for one to two months, or a year - in order to clearly understand what we invest in the space industry, and what we will obtain as a result", said Volodymyr Groysman.
According to him, Ukraine possesses a considerable potential for the development of space industry, which in previous years wasn’t used deliberately.
"Like our country's defensive capacity, and space industry and other high-tech productions used to be destroyed, and they were destroyed from the inside of the system. In particular those were interested in that who wanted to weaken Ukraine", he said.
Volodymyr Groysman noted that despite current poor space industry position in the country, it was necessary to make personnel decisions, as the Government did.
