Russia keeps Indian Tricolour, removes flags of UK, US and Japan from rocket

Amid an ongoing war with Ukraine, and consequent sanctions, Russian workers covered the flags of the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan but kept the Indian Tricolour on its space rocket.

After Russia warned that the USA and European nations’ sanctions due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine can result in a crash of the International Space Station, they have now removed all the flags of countries participating in a space program from a rocket they are launching, except the flag of India.

“The launchers at Baikonur decided that without the flags of some countries, our rocket would look more beautiful,” Russian space agency ROSCOSMOS’ chief Dmitry Rogozin tweeted. He shared a video of workers covering certain flags painted on a Russian space rocket.

Also new sanctions have been imposed on Russia as a result of its invasion of Ukraine by countries all around the world.

On Saturday, the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Canada prohibited some Russian banks from using SWIFT, a high-security network that connects 11,000 financial institutions in 200 countries.

Following Moscow’s moves, Germany suspended certification of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline earlier this week.

Over the weekend, the European Union, the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, and Taiwan all issued new injunctions against Moscow, condemning the military incursion that occurred in the previous 24 hours.
