Liability for damages inflicted by a space
object of Russian Federation within the territory of Russian Federation or
outside the jurisdiction of any state, except outer space, shall arise
regardless of the fault of the inflictor thereof.
If in any place, apart from the Earth's
surface, damage has been inflicted on a space object of Russian Federation or
on property on board of such object by another space object, the liability of
organizations and citizens shall emerge with their being at fault and in
proportion to their fault.
Should liability for damage inflicted by a space
object of Russian Federation attach to several organizations and citizens, the
injured party may claim for a compensation to all such organizations and
citizens or to any of them.
In the latter case, the organization or the
citizen that has indemnified for the damage shall have the right of recourse
against the correspondents, whose liability shall be apportioned according to
the degree of their fault, and if it is impossible to establish the fault !
