Europe admitted dependence in space due to anti-Russian sanctions

In Europe, they admitted to being dependent on space due to anti-Russian sanctions

Europe is in a dead end with space programs due to the imposed anti-Russian sanctions. La Nouvelle Tribune writes about this. As a result, the Galileo satellite navigation project, which was supposed to give Europe sovereignty in matters of geolocation, was under threat.

The European Space Agency was forced, due to sanctions, to abandon the Russian Soyuz as launch vehicles. And turn to the American SpaceX of Elon Musk. However, the authors of the article believe that this is a temporary solution. And it proves the dependence of Europeans in the space industry on other players in this market.

The publication also recalls that previously space was considered a sphere free from political confrontation. However, now politics has penetrated there too. Journalists suggest that Europe should still focus on its own missile program in order to gain independence in this industry.
