Roscosmos head about most painful U.S. sanctions on Russia's industry
U.S. sanctions on the supply of microelectronics products to Russia were the most painful, but the industry is coping with them, head of Russia's State Space Corporation Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said.
The Roscosmos head stressed that US sanctions in relation to Russian defense industry products will not work, because they are made from domestic components, while in the space sector Russia and the United States are mutually dependent.
"I strongly doubt that sanctions can have any significant impact on the volumes and quality of production. All that needed to be replaced, we have already replaced," he said in an interview with Channel 1 television.
He admitted, though, that the sanctions on the supply of microelectronics products to Russia were "quite painful." "But we are coping with that," Sputnik cited Rogozin as saying.
