Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia will work together as part of the Cosmotrans space cooperation project, Ukrainian First Deputy Prime Minister Andriy Klyuyev said on Thursday.

Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia will work together as part of the Cosmotrans space cooperation project, Ukrainian First Deputy Prime Minister Andriy Klyuyev said on Thursday.

The project provides for the joint use of Kazakhstan's Baikonur space center.

Kazakhstan and Ukraine signed a space cooperation agreement during Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev's recent visit to Ukraine.

"It [Cosmotrans] used to be a Ukrainian-Russian project, but now it is a tripartite project between Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan," Klyuyev said.

The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers also expects to sign contracts with Kazakhstan to deliver Ukrainian-built An-148, An-158 and An-74 airplanes, he said.
