‘We Did Not Tell NASA to Stop Cooperation With Russia’ – US State Department

The US State Department did not call upon NASA to suspend its contacts with Russia, a spokesperson for the State Department said Thursday.
NASA announced on Wednesday that amid tensions over Ukraine it would freeze cooperation with Russia, excluding collaboration on the International Space Station.
"I know that there were false reports on Thursday claiming that the US State Department told them to do that. As much as I would have liked to give orders to NASA, we do not do that," said State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf.
