Russia is concerned about number of US satellites in space

During a speech at United Nations General Assembly First Committee, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Office at Geneva Andrey Belousov said that Russia is concerned about the number of American satellites in space.

“At the same time, we have serious concerns about the American group of satellites,” said Belousov, as quoted by RIA Novosti news agency.

He noted that the grouping of US satellites “has more than a thousand units and has the same number of satellites as all other countries combined.”

At the same time, according to him, the purpose of these satellites is unknown, “since all of them are somehow registered as meteorological or telecommunications satellites.”

Belousov also noted that “back in the 1960s and 1970s, the United States carried out several programs to create “killer satellites” and stressed that “it is important to remember this because the United States and its allies are constantly making statements about using satellites as weapons.”

In August, during a ceremony marking the launch of the United States Space Command, US President Donald Trump called space the next area of military action.

  • “it is important to remember this because the United States and its allies are constantly making statements about using satellites as weapons.”

    Isn’t technology marvellous. Muscovy shitting themselves because they have no idea what the US is capable of. If they keep pushing their luck, maybe one day they will find out what these satellites are for.

    • Mention the Star Wars programme and panic starts to creep in. I have no doubt the US could totally destroy all the Russian satellites and send them back centuries.

  • NATO is expected to announce it considers space a “warfighting domain.” at summit in December. The landmark announcement would cement the notion that, like the air, land, and sea domains, space is a potential battlefield whose control is vital in a future conflict.
