At the Pentagon, the Russian anti-satellite missile was recognized as a "threat to the United States"

Russia continues to test anti-satellite weapons, the next launch of a satellite interception rocket with direct launch into orbit was carried out on April 15, 2020, which represents a challenge to US interests in near-Earth space. This was stated by the head of the US Space Command, General John Raymond.


The Russian test of DA-ASAT (direct interception anti-satellite missile) shows another example that threats to US and allied space systems are real, serious and growing.

- said the general, adding that this missile system is capable of destroying American satellites in low orbit.

Raymond emphasized that the U.S. Space Forces closely followed the tests of the Russian rocket, and were fully prepared to deter aggression in space, as well as protect the interests of the United States and its allies in near-Earth space.

The general accused Russia of non-compliance with space arms control and continued arms development as part of anti-satellite programs.

This test is yet another proof of Russia's hypocritical attitude towards space arms control proposals that were made to limit US capabilities, and (Russia) clearly had no intentions to stop its own anti-satellite programs

- he said.

Moscow has repeatedly declared the threat of the militarization of outer space, and Washington’s statements about Russia’s alleged placement of weapons in outer space have been called an attempt by the United States to avert suspicions. Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the United States would be the first country to formally place weapons in Earth orbit.

      The general accused Russia of non-compliance with space arms control and continued arms development as part of anti-satellite programs.

      Ну да, как только у России появляется что-то стоящее в рамках обороны, так сразу мы являемся милитаристами ! Но ведь это ракета если и будет сбивать, то только прилетевший буквально "на голову" опасный для нас космический аппарат. Она не будет летать на орбите как Х-37 несколько месяцев и ждать команды !
      And why does the X-37 fly, what is the purpose of its flights, can they enlighten and show what it has on board ?!

    The United States should recognize that the world is not their property, and others may also have their own interests, which will not always coincide with them.

    Anti-satellite, electronic warfare and
    anti-aircraft missile systems constitute a trio, the development of which in the present and future will determine the state’s readiness for high-tech conflicts.
    Only crazy people can stop the development of such systems.

    A threat to the United States immediately declares any weapon appearing in Russia, but the answer is interesting, not the reaction to the appearance of weapons.
    The American response usually consists in being proactive, regardless of treaties, international agreements and restrictions.

    ======
    Т.е. Разрабатывать системы размещения оружия в космосе (естественно для "борьбы с российской угрозой") - это есть ХОРОШО, а разрабатывать системы для борьбы с таким оружием - есть ПЛОХО?

    US space forces closely monitored the tests of the Russian rocket, and are fully prepared to deter aggression in space, as well as protect the interests of the United States and its allies in near-Earth space.

    Is this a threat if they are fully prepared to repulse it? And then they will soon be afraid to go out before the wind.

        How how. The Senate will take and ban.
        And the prohibition sign will sign and at the same time introduce new sanctions

    Трамп уже дал команду приватизировать Луну, вот там и спрячетесь. Естественно, что американцы хотели бы быть самыми, самыми и на земной орбите и от туда грозить "пальчиком", но не все коту масленица.

    - said the general, adding that this missile system is capable of destroying American satellites in low orbit

    So they would confirm by deed, they would bring down some kind of satellite, which will soon be decommissioned.
    And to put into orbit does not mean to bring down. So far, Americans and Chinese have been able to bring down satellites.


    The general accused Russia of non-compliance with space arms control and continued arms development as part of anti-satellite programs.

    Yes, here you can laugh for a long time, given the fact that the Americans are doing the same thing. Funny.)

      Мы о успехах испытаний наших оборонных технологий и вооружений узнаем только по озабоченностям самой "мирной" державы.
      Но кстати пока наша "Нудоль" не дотянулась до последних Иджисов по высоте перехвата, 1000 км меньше чем 1500 км у них, так что есть куда развиваться. Особенно, что надо уничтожать спутники не только на низких орбитах, но и до высоких пора дотягиваться.

        By the way, the American statement states that the system we tested can destroy satellites that are in low Earth orbit - 160–2000 km above the planet’s surface.

    А мы о своих успехах и достижениях в военной области почти всегда узнавали особено во времена Союза. Правда без "озабоченности" нашего противника. Это сейчас принято говорить об озабоченности
    "Нудоль" не дотянулась до последних "Стандартов" (не "Иджисов") не только по досягаемости, но и по массо-габаритным характеристикам.
    No one in the world can reach high orbits
