The defense department said that even before the official steps, the Pentagon was actively developing space weapons without any warnings. And after the discovery of information about the tests, the more it will do it. According to representatives of the Ministry of Defense, the United States has tested the latest, promising strike-combat weapons of various types, including the latest modifications of the X-37 unmanned spacecraft. Moscow sees this as a threat.
“The actions of the American side are assessed as a threat and incompatible with the declared goals of the peaceful use of outer space. Against this background, the Russian Ministry of Defense is carrying out planned activities to strengthen the defense capability, excluding the possibility of sudden damage to the country’s security in the space sector and on the ground by existing and prospective foreign space assets, ”the ministry said in a statement.
