MONTREAL - A top official with the Vancouver company behind two cameras on the International Space Station says it hasn't been affected by actions taken against Russia over its involvement in Ukraine.

UrtheCast Corp. CEO Scott Larson says the situation is unsettling but hasn't had any impact on his firm.

Except for co-operation related to the space station, NASA has severed ties with Russia and its employees are prohibited from travelling there.

NASA said in a statement Wednesday it will continue to work with the Russian space agency to maintain continuous operation of the space station.

Cosmonauts installed two UrtheCast cameras on the exterior of the Russian section of the space station in January.

UrtheCast (TSX:UR) partnered with Russian aerospace firm RSC Energia on the project.
