 Russia blames Ukraine for Soyuz rocket booster failure

Kremlin-sponsored media outlet alleges the reason for the recent failure on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft may be "sabotage".

"The Soyuz rocket, which flight was aborted minutes after it took off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, was equipped with a Ukrainian-made control system, the media found out. Sources also report that sabotage is not ruled out," Russian NTV channel tweeted on Monday, Censor.NET reports.

On Oct. 12, NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin survived an emergency landing following a booster failure on the Soyuz rocket carrying them to the International Space Station.
