The author considers the historical and legal aspects of the development of the rocket and space industry of Ukraine as a heritage of the production of intercontinental missiles within the framework of the military-industrial complex (MIC) of the USSR. The reasons for the advent of the rocket industry in the context of the “cold” war of the 20th century and trends of the rocket and space industry of Ukraine from the structure of public administration remained within the military-industrial complex of the last century are considered. The possibility of overcoming the current impasse in public administration of the industry under the State Space Agency of Ukraine is evaluated, with the involvement of private rocket and space structures, which requires changes in legislation and reveals unresolved governance problems. The author argues that recognition of world trends and their reflection in the Ukrainian legal field is an urgent necessity. The potential way out of the current deadlock situation in public administration of the industry in subordination is evaluated. The analysis enables to determine the necessary actions in a lawful manner to increase the effectiveness of public administration of the Ukrainian rocket and space industry, challenging obstacles to this at the moment, and to make a proposal regarding the trend of formation of public administration of private space rocket engineering on the example of the Ukrainian space project “GreenSpace.”
