  • New York (CNN Business)Russia's space agency, Roscosmos, will no longer deliver Russian-made rocket engines to the United States, Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin said on state television, ending a decades-long relationship between US and Russian rocket makers.
  • "Today we have made a decision to halt the deliveries of rocket engines produced by NPO Energomash to the United States," Rogozin said, according to the Russian news site Tass.
  • Tass reported that the ban will apply to RD-180 engines that power US-based United Launch Alliance's (ULA) Atlas V rockets.
  • "As of today, there were plans to deliver an additional 12 RD-181 engines in 2022-2024 and talks were also held with the United States on the delivery of RD-181M engines with improved operational characteristics, but we believe that in this situation we can no longer supply the United States with our best engines," the Roscosmos head said.
