Space Exploration is a Positive Result of Globalisation

Outer space is "a positive example of globalisation: resources of many countries serve the exploration and the use of space, said Russian Federation Council Speaker Sergei Mironov. On Friday he visited the Cosmonaut Training Centre in Stellar Town near Moscow and congratulated the cosmonauts on the coming Day of Cosmonautics which is marked in Russia on April 12. On that day in 1961 Russian citizen Yury Gagarin performed the first-ever space flight.

The Speaker said that today the Russian cosmonauts are accomplishing "a very important task" - after the crash of the American space shuttle Columbia, they have to shoulder all the work connected with the functioning of the International Space Station.

The Russian parliamentarian expressed confidence that the first flights to the planets of the solar system would be carried out also by joint efforts of the world community.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump regime "sought options to strike Iran," falsely saying it may pursue a course no previous US leadership considered. More on this below.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
