The project involves the creation of an astrophysical space observatory to observe the sources of gamma radiation in the universe.
The scientist said that at some point they had a breakdown of relations with their Italian colleagues. It was planned that the Italians would make a part of the equipment for the observatory, which measures the angle of trajectory of the gamma particle.
"With the Ukrainians, we simply had to stop work, because their leadership allegedly politely recommended scientists not to participate," Galper said.
It is reported that Ukraine had to make detectors - transparent crystals through which the gamma particle passes and loses energy, and it can be measured. Also, the Ukrainian side was responsible for the equipment that monitors the electromagnetic environment. Now, this equipment will be produced by Russia. ■
