In Poland, the Kremlin is suspected of creating a secret space weapon

83

Foreign observers note the suspicious behavior of the Russian satellites, believing that they are acting in something unusual. What if they are preparing for space wars?


Eva Skorupko discusses this topic in an article published by the Polish edition of Interia.

The actions of one Russian satellite in 2018 were discussed by experts during an international conference on disarmament organized by the UN. Experts noted that the spacecraft makes unusual maneuvers.

In particular, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control Ilim Poblet expressed concern about this:

We do not know what it is, and we have no way of verifying, but Russia's intentions related to this satellite cause great concern.

The Polish newspaper notes that Russia does not provide answers, forcing the international community to speculate - including regarding the creation of a secret space weapons.

The satellite in question was launched into orbit in October 2017. Moscow claims that the device is inspecting other satellites, but in the West it is assumed that it is part of the preparation for space wars.

Earlier, in 2014, the Russian Federation had already launched a similar object into space. At first, its launch was not even noticed, because officially the launch vehicle launched three satellites into orbit, but in fact there were four of them. The "unaccounted" apparatus at first behaved quite decently, like everyone else, but soon its behavior changed. He maneuvered between other Russian satellites until he merged with one of them.

The machine, launched in 2017, behaved in a similar fashion.

One of the hypotheses put forward by experts suggested that the Russian facility was designed to clean up space debris. But if it had such a noble mission, then, according to Western analysts, it would not be hidden, but, on the contrary, would have solemnly announced its launch.

Experts counted as many as four such devices in orbit.

Russia is accused of the fact that these Russian devices are "destroyers of satellites", that is, they are designed to disable enemy spacecraft. They even suggest that Moscow has already applied its new space weapons in practice, referring to a suspicious catastrophe that happened to one European satellite. The vehicle, owned by a private company and providing services to NATO, NASA and other organizations, suddenly collapsed, falling apart into several parts.

The Polish author believes that the creation by the United States of the Space Forces was a response to Russia's aggressive actions in space, but perhaps this decision was made too late.

It is worth adding that in his speech at the UN General Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the countries of the world to sign a legally binding agreement on the inadmissibility of placing weapons in outer space. For some reason, this initiative of Putin was not remembered in the Polish press.

    - no, well, you have to be a complete idiot and do not prepare for reflection in all areas - water, earth-space, while it is already clear to everyone who owns the air and wins on earth, but who owns space - he has an advantage everywhere !! !

      If this is really what we have in Russia, then I'm glad yes but it is obvious that the entire Baltic-Polish-Ukrainian space is sharpened, their master is the United States, on yapping, with the further imposition of sanctions.

        Yes, Americans can do that laughing , they have the same democratic, kind and cute companions. Not like those evil Russians.

        Just a reminder. The first in the world reconnaissance satellites of specific and radio-technical reconnaissance were launched by the Americans. Their development began as part of the WS-117L (Weapon System-117L) program for three interrelated projects: CORONA (according to open sources it was called Discoverer, later retrospectively they were called KeyHole), MIDAS and SAMOS. Moreover, in the United States, the development of the first projects began before the launch of their first satellite Explorer-1 - March 16, 1955. Later they received tremendous development, especially the KH series. The beginning of the development of Soviet programs was the decree of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 569-264 on May 22, 1957.
        Now, in the interests of the military, various spacecraft are launched, including research and often quite unusual designs (for example, the DSX satellite). Their satellites actively "drop" other vehicles, maneuver, etc.

      Polish Bigos will fly into space

      On Sunday, October 25, 2018, at the military training ground in Dravsk Pomorskiy, SpaceForest conducted the first flight of the BIGOS 4 rocket to an altitude of 15 kilometers. It is the prototype of a suborbital rocket developed by the Gdynia-based enterprise - one of 2 missiles built in Poland, which, during flights to the outer space, could allow future technology testing and research in a microgravity state. The purpose of the test was to verify the aerodynamic parameters and design aspects of the rocket in supersonic flight. We also tested the effectiveness of communications with the rocket during the flight, checked the mileage, refueling the rocket when it was brought to the launch pad, and confirmed the set of procedures aimed at correct implementation. The flight went according to plan. The launch of the BIGOS 4 rocket is one of the important events for the Polish space industry, which took place in the second half of November 2018.

In addition, launched by the Pentagon program. But they are silent. And the Poles do not stutter about this. Oh yes, of course, something different, you need to understand. laughing

    And there were also earlier! The first destruction of a satellite target in the USSR took place on November 1, 1968. After that, more than two dozen successful tests were carried out.
    At the same time, since 1976, the tests were completed by contact with the "target" and their vault from orbit (so as not to litter the Space). It dawned on the Poles late. Although understandably, they are now the dearest friends with Estonians. belay

    Long before the Lokhankin family drama, the pilot Sevryugov (...) flew on an urgent business trip of Osoaviakhim to the Arctic Circle. The whole world, worried, watched the flight of Sevryugov. A foreign expedition going to the Pole disappeared without a trace, and Sevryugov had to find it. The world lived with hope for the pilot's successful actions. Radio stations of all continents talked, meteorologists warned the brave Sevryugov against magnetic storms, shortwave people filled the air with a whistle, and the Polish newspaper Kurier Poranny, close to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, already demanded the expansion of Poland to the 1772 border.

    The Second World War taught the Poles nothing. They again created a bridgehead on their territory for an attack on Russia. Only instead of the Wehrmacht, American troops and their NATO assistants are now deployed in Poland. Is it logical to assume that now the territory of Poland has become a target for all types of weapons in the event of a retaliatory strike against aggression against Russia?
    As far as space weapon systems are concerned, Russia has observed, is observing and will observe international treaties regarding the non-deployment of weapons in outer space as long as it does not threaten our country with an attack from space. And the Poles with their provocations can go to hell.

    The Polish newspaper notes that Russia does not give answers, forcing the international community to speculate - including about the creation of a secret space weapon by the Kremlin.


    Ask the USA, will they tell you about theirs? In general, this is what is called a cap on the thief, it rolls a test balloon through its mongrels.

    Even if there are Russian combat satellites in orbit (and I'm sure they are), then what difference does it make to Poland? Let them go harvest strawberries and apples and trade in Russophobia, while space is ours.

    We do not know what it is, and we have no way of verifying, but Russia's intentions related to this satellite cause great concern.

    We cannot verify, we do not know, but the fears are great - that's all the fuss.

    "The 'unreported' device at first behaved quite decently, like everyone else, but soon its behavior changed. It maneuvered between other Russian satellites until it merged with one of them." - So what? It was a tanker. An absolutely peaceful product

    How did they know?
    Did they spy on the Polish orbital station, or did Miroslav Germaszewski report for money?
