“The statement by the representative of the Pentagon that the United States will“ defend and protect ”space from its militarization by Russia and China should be regarded as Washington’s intention to turn outer space into a springboard for military provocations. Our country, which Washington considers to be sources of a missile threat, will take into account in its defensive strategy every destructive US maneuver. ” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak.
According to the politician: “American warriors have long peered into the starry sky with the hope of placing their weapons there. To justify the growing appetites of the war machine, in the depths of the Pentagon, the idea of the alleged aggression of Russia and China was fabricated. Earlier, the United States decided to create space forces as part of the United States Air Force and more than once declared readiness for military confrontation in space.
The irresponsible steps of the United States and the destructive consequences of aggressive statements create great tension in the world and push countries to revise their defensive strategies. Russia is categorically against the militarization of space and is taking all possible measures to impose a legislative ban on the placement of weapons in outer space at the international level. ”
