The US said that Russia has "signs of the presence of space weapons"

Russia behaves "irresponsibly" in space and threatens American interests. This was stated by the director of US national intelligence John Ratcliffe.


Speaking at a meeting of the National Space Council, Ratcliffe accused Russia of launching a satellite into space, which, according to him, approached the American spacecraft and began to "perform maneuvers" near it. He stressed that earlier Russia had already launched such satellites into space, possessing "signs of space weapons".

Russia itself, he said, has signs of such weapons.

Russia, especially recently, has shown provocative behavior that creates a potentially dangerous situation ... We consider this as threatening behavior

- said the head of US national intelligence.

According to Ratcliffe, Russia and China are constantly developing and deploying new and destructive weapons in space, thereby posing a threat to the vital interests of the United States and its allies in space.

(...) Russia's actions are not the actions of a responsible space power

- he added.

The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, commented on Ratcliffe's statement, who criticized Russia's actions in space.

Something Americans have a nervous space breakdown today ...

- Rogozin wrote ironically on Twitter.

    We had it back in the USSR.
    And how are we actually worse than the USA?
    They can, but we can not?
    Once we got into a fuss, either the budget must be approved, or we found out that we really got ahead.

      Russia cannot develop and launch space weapons, but the United States is different! It's clear that when the Americans were convinced that we had real hypersonic weapons, that these are not easy cartoons, the representatives of the Pentagon and the State Department put forward a condition for the extension of START-3, including in it all modern Russian weapons that they do not yet have.

          In the statement by John Ratcliffe, Director of US National Intelligence, that Russia allegedly behaves in space "irresponsibly" and threatens American interests of the United States with "signs of the RF possessing space weapons", I am personally surprised by the very fact that it was expressed NOW. Namely.

          After all, similar conversations about Russian satellites were conducted by Washington before. In my opinion, about 2 years ago. And then all the "misunderstandings" of the United States were clarified with the Russian Federation and then, in principle, nothing changed with the Russian satellites.
          So why, then, did Washington need such a statement from the US director of national intelligence AGAIN NOW? Isn't it just a COVER - a "noise curtain" - of something else against the Russian Federation in favor of the United States? Namely.

          For example.
          The media, citing the Militarist Telegram channel, reported that Ukraine handed over to NATO one of its most secret and guarded military facilities. The publications say that we are talking about the Ovidiopol-2 complex, which is located in the Odessa region. During the Soviet era, it was there that the 8th separate radio center of the special service of the KGB of the USSR was stationed. The facility was built to monitor space processes, bodies and satellites.
          Of particular concern is the fact that it appears that the object has already fallen into the hands of NATO and after "reconstruction" will pose a very serious threat to the grouping of Russian troops on the Crimean Peninsula, as well as to global positioning and navigation systems of aircraft and ships.
          this assumption is indeed not without foundation, especially in the light of the latest statements by senior NATO officials regarding the containment of Russia in the Black Sea region.

            In the mid-70s, in some magazine, I don't remember exactly which one, but a technical one, I read one article. It said that in some American newspaper a photograph had appeared in which a man was seen standing in the street and reading the newspaper Pravda. Moreover, the name of the newspaper was clearly visible. The image was allegedly taken from a satellite.
            After this publication, the satellite disappeared
            It was in the mid 70s

            This complex is at least 25 years old. After the Ukrovskoy privatization, nothing was repaired or updated on it. So, this is a large field of rusty antennas and shabby buildings with old equipment. Unless the mattress toppers bring something of their own.

          But the signs are very weak! So we are not sure ... I hope that the development of this very space weapon, quite successfully carried out in the 60s of the last century, miraculously survived and is working. Very useful stuff at the moment.

And the reliability and durability of the then developments are unlike modern ones (which, in general, are far from the fact that they will work at all at least once). In general, I hope that there are some of the 60s in orbit. It will definitely stand up for the country.

                  Well, yes, there is a lot) If I begin to list it, my comment will be deleted again.
                  Well, in the 60s, the satellite transmitted its position, followed by a correction (a series of corrections) for targeting, and it was possible to shoot. The math for the sequence of commands was done in the MCC. Now everything has become cool - computers have appeared, components for which we do not make (in fact, thank God that we are not in this industry (removed by the censorship), and which are sold to us of borderline quality, no higher. That is, either a marriage, or will work for a couple of years, and in space for a couple of weeks, yeah. Well, the orientation engines, other stuffing of the satellite are molded by guys with a salary of 15-20 tr, with all the proletarian love for the authorities and the country.
                  Can we have a couple of satellites from the 60s? Well, so that you can rely on something?

                    It so happened that in the MCC, and in many other places, fellow students work.

    The director of US national intelligence is disingenuous, intimidating the Americans so that they would not be indignant that the US military budget is approaching a trillion DLR.
    It is no longer a secret that back in the USSR, there were space maneuvering vehicles - they were called abroad: "satellite inspector", "satellite interceptor", "kamikaze satellite", as you liked. The first destruction of the "target satellite" in the USSR, occurred on November 1, 1968

    Russian officials and politicians have said that Russia is behaving "irresponsibly" not only in space. Incorrectly intercepts their planes at their borders, drives American ships out of their territorial waters, creates hypersonic weapons, etc., etc. At the same time, whoever behaves irresponsibly on the world stage is only the United States.

    Well, while they are figuring out whether there are signs or not, we can directly state that a part of the American establishment has signs of degradation and full-blown Russophobia.

    Mobile complexes and space deployment complexes are a very gentle impact.

    They are stationary, acting directly on the ionosphere. The button was pressed - and welcome to the pre-satellite era. Paper maps, compasses and corded telephones.

    The disadvantage is that they act indiscriminately. Ours will also have to make do with the same tool. While the enemy draws maps of the offensive, we change the landscapes, and manually. When the time comes for the attack, the enemy is lost in unfamiliar terrain and comes to full non-readiness. This is the point, this is our strategy. " laughing

    Jealousy, greed and stupidity are short about the United States. They will continue to invent and hide behind everything they can, they will blame the most healthy for all their troubles, and at the same time they will present themselves, the self-elected and loved ones, only as supposedly the most powerful and intelligent. Nonsense however.

    "Russia is behaving 'irresponsibly' in space and threatening American interests."
    There Russia has its own interests and it behaves as beneficial to it, and not to America. And what not? Well then, sorry, move over.
