An accession process to the European Space Agency (ESA) is complex, and has not yet been launched for Ukraine, Director-General Jan Woerner told Sputnik.

COLORADO SPRINGS (Sputnik) — Ukraine's State Space Agency Chairman Yuriy Radchenko said at the Space Symposium on Tuesday that Ukraine is actively cooperating with the ESA in order to become its member.

"We have several countries asking for being a member of European Space Agency. To become a member is a rather complicated issue," Woerner said, adding that the process has not been started for Ukraine. "I think it our necessity as humans on earth to cooperate worldwide. But concerning Ukraine, I cannot give you any answer at this time."
