Abstract

After the termination of cooperation with Russia, Ukrainian domestic rocket and space industry faced the need of some reorientation. It`s shown that according to the political reasons and previous experience it is reasonable to focus the reorientation on the deepening of the cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA), the United States and China. Some proposals on probable ways of joint activities are given. It is noticed that success of the cooperation will depend on foreign companies’ interests in local projects and motivating conditions for the maintenance of efficient joint activities.
