Staying with Russia, the country also launched an Iranian satellite into space. A Soyuz rocket booster, carrying the Iranian satellite "Khayyam" blasted off Tuesday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
According to Russia's space agency, the satellite has entered a stable orbit, with Iran's space agency claiming that it's already started receiving data. The launch comes just three weeks after Russian and Iranian leaders Vladimir Putin and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, pledged to work together against the West.
The collaboration has U.S. officials worried that the satellite will help Russia in its Ukraine invasion, whilst providing Iran with monitoring capabilities over Israel and the surrounding region. Iran claims that its satellite is designed for scientific purposes only.
