Moscow is banning Washington from using Russian-made rocket engines, which the US has used to deliver its military satellites into orbit, said Russias Deputy PM, Dmitry Rogozin, who is in charge of space and defense industries.
According to Rogozin, Russia is also halting the operation of all American GPS stations on its territory from June 1.
DETAILS TO FOLLOW
Russian state-owned media.
Obama Killed NASA shuttle program with no replacement in the near future!
~So why are we using Russian rocket engines to begin with?~
These are more efficient and reliable but I think it won’t take long to replace with American technology.
As for GPS it is huge. It would reduce an accuracy of the system beyond required for military use.
That was an honest question, and I will give a 100% honest answer.
I do not trust our media, and I likewise do not trust Russia’s media.
They are both propaganda elements, of their respective governments.
It is really sad, but we can not trust anyone it seems.
I would however like to see another source for this news, before I decide about this news.
Good. We need our own way to space so the Russians can go F#ck themselves.

IMO, Russia is preparing for a full-blown economic war against the United States and Europe.
They know Europe is vunerable, Obama and the Minions are incompetent, and that we can’t support Europe forever. The gas/oil deal with China to be signed next week gives Russia TONS of breathing room from sanctions.
News Headlines frommthe last 24 hours:
-Russia Will Cut All Gas Supplies to Ukraine On June 3rd, If No Payment Made
-Russia bans police, emergency and military employees from traveling abroad
Yeah, but you can safely say that RT reflects the position of its boss, Putin.
Another headline that backs up my suspicion about Economic War.
-Russias third largest bank moves money from Europe to Moscow for safe keeping
Gazprombank transferred client funds from Belgium and Luxembourg back to home turf, to protect against any future sanctions.
The securities were moved from Euroclear Bank (Brussels) and Clearstream Banking (Luxembourg) to the Russian Central Depository at the end of April.
The move is intended to protect customers from any forthcoming sanctions and prevent a situation where clients funds are frozen, the statement on the website said.
The transfer was done to prevent possible restrictions on transactions of customers assets that are kept in international deposits and settlement systems, it stated. In preparation for sanctions, in March, the bank moved nearly $7 billion to Russias Central Bank for safe keeping.

“Pawn takes rook. Your move Obama.”
Obama is still playing Checkers....
We have front row seats to the collapse of the greatest nation the world has ever known.
If the Russians and Chinese suppliers cut off our military equipment, the USA will have to surrender. That’s what happens when pacifist Democrats and globalist Republicans screw around with the country’s defense. We are doomed.
Obama is still playing Tiddly-Winks.
