Pentagon insists on extension of Russian rocket engine use till 2022

The Department of Defense has asked Congress to allow Russian rocket engines to be used until 2022, in order to keep the country’s space program going. The US is partly dependent on the Russian technology for launching its satellites into orbit.

General John Hyten, head of the US Air Force Space Command, spoke about extending the use of Russian engines to journalists on Tuesday, TASS reported.
