Russia claims U.S. space weapons programme a threat to global security

Russia has claimed that plans by the United States to deploy weapons in space would deal an irreversible blow to the current security balance in space, the RIA news agency reported the foreign ministry as saying.

Russia does not have plans to solve problems in space using weapons, the foreign ministry added.

In February 2019, the U.S. Defence Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s top intelligence arm, claimed that both Russia and Chine were developing satellite mounted laser weapons and ground-based anti-satellite missiles.
