Russian Foreign Minister called for a negotiation process to prevent the deployment of weapons in outer space

39

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has published a video message dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight into space. It is today that Russia and the whole world are celebrating this remarkable date, recalling an outstanding event - the Gagarin launch from Baikonur.


During his video message, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry congratulated everyone on Cosmonautics Day, on the anniversary of the first manned flight, noting that the Vostok flight ushered in a new era in the annals of civilization.

Sergei Lavrov:

For billions of people around the world, Yuri Gagarin continues to serve as an example of heroism and dedication, to inspire people to overcome any obstacles in achieving the most ambitious and noble goals.

The Russian Foreign Minister noted that the task of space exploration is the development of civilization. In this regard, he raised the question of the need to take measures that would prevent the transformation of outer space into a sphere of militarization.

According to Sergei Lavrov, Russia is in favor of starting a negotiation process, the result of which should be the creation of an international document with legal obligations to prevent the placement of any types of weapons in outer space, as well as to ban the use of force and the threat of its use there.

Lavrov suggested using the draft treaty, which was introduced during the Geneva Conference on Disarmament in 2014, when developing such a document. This project was once developed by Russia and China.

        Yes, and the latest steps by the Americans clearly run counter to the Outer Space Treaty of October 10, 1967. Washington has long been engaged in a dialogue on the maximum use of space not only for peaceful purposes, but considers it as a space for the use of its military forces, where the Americans should have an absolute advantage. Trump also adopted a decree giving the Americans the right to develop space resources, and Biden is not going to cancel it (like many other decrees of the previous administration).

          It is complete nonsense to negotiate with a country that, at a convenient moment for itself, easily withdraws from any agreements. Perhaps the proposal of the Russian Foreign Ministry is just a tribute to tradition and populism, against the background of the complete collapse of international law with legalized double standards. Nevertheless, the Foreign Ministry must understand that in the absence of a counterbalance to the aggressive policy of NATO at the head of the United States, it is basically impossible to talk about any "international law". Now there is only one right - the right is strong.

          That's right. You can, of course, declare something there, negotiate, prepare agreements, and even conclude them. But at the same time, it is necessary to continue working on space weapons at an accelerated pace. One hell of America is not negotiable and will break any treaty whenever it wants to.

            I regularly “pop up” the idea that Moscow is the capital, but at the same time not Russia. In every joke, there is only a fraction of the joke. My grandfather and grandmother worked at the union in the Samara "space" assembly plant, my grandmother accompanied the ships to Baikonur in the final process, my grandfather was a system tester. So, although remotely, there is an attitude towards the holiday from relatives. And at the moment, and the Samara air and space factories, the state of the design bureau (if you do not take TV reports, but know the situation from the inside), you can slightly "burst into tears" from the comparison. It is "Moscow" that appoints effective managers with a humanitarian understanding of complex technical processes. Okay, you can write about the patient for a long time, today is not about that - Happy Holidays !!! drinks

    I don’t understand - who called whom? China with the USA? Or Europe? It is impossible today to talk seriously about space with Russia, which has practically lost the status of a space power? Even 20 years ago, China was inferior to us in space exploration, and today they are already building the fifth cosmodrome (and will certainly build), which in 25 will carry out 100 launches a year. That is, it is not even a spaceport, but a spaceport. I'm not even talking about, going at full speed, their lunar and Martian programs. Here with the Chinese amers it still makes sense to negotiate something.
    And what about Russia?
    With a quite decent space budget, many times higher than the budget of the Musk company, the results are not even zero, but negative. We are still treated to cartoons and promises about the Vostochny cosmodrome, founded in Soviet times.

      It is impossible to take seriously such, I'm not afraid to say this, "statements" as "practically lost the status of a space power." This is how defeatists and mourners usually say on the net, infantiles who could not do anything in their lives and now take revenge on everyone and press the keys in messages.

      The main thing here is to throw in more, more. In 1987, the USSR carried out 95 space launches, and then, it was an urgent need - most of these launches were photographic reconnaissance satellites with a short life - the film was quickly running out. Russia, having the possibility of launches from four cosmodromes in different parts of the Earth, is preparing for the commercial use of the fifth Sea Launch cosmodrome. The C7 Development Center is developing its own launch vehicle based on the latest space technologies:

      And what about Russia?


      And Russia is preparing to launch several interesting space projects this year. This is, first of all, the launch of the MLM-U "Nauka" heavy module to the ISS, which will significantly expand the Russian scientific program at the station:



      Factory tests of the module have been completed with a positive result. The module itself is transferred to a pressure chamber for pre-flight checks.

      Behind the heavy module is the light one - the "Prichal" nodal module.



      Also, the launch of scientific satellites of the "Ionosphere" project is expected - four small spacecraft will monitor the geophysical situation and observe the ionosphere and the Sun.

      And in autumn the lunar lander Luna-25 will be launched.

    And how to share minerals on the planets with countries that are accustomed to their colonies and slave labor? This is the first) Second, as practice shows, the West has long learned to use treaties when it is necessary to play for time. And it easily gets rid of them when the need for it disappears. Hoping for an agreement with the West - this is upward of frivolity) Third - not a single UN, OSCE, OPCW, etc. will not be stopped by the right western countries. These structures were created to knit unwanted countries hand and foot. Examples: Iraq, Syria) The list goes on)) So in the future there will be, and the First interplanetary war, and the Second .. And if you do not hurry up, as, for example, England did in its time on the seas and on land, then history will repeat itself. And it will definitely repeat itself

    Actually, this is a holiday of the Soviet Union, because this power in space has nothing to boast about! And on earth "feats" are such that really, for the state it is insulting! In Rostov-on-Don, a couple of years ago, the only museum of cosmonautics in the region was closed. All his employees were removed from the staff and fired. The building where the museum is still located will be sold, exhibits, including original spacesuits, documents, a compartment of the Soyuz18 descent vehicle, rare scientific instruments - in a word, everything that is there, if they do not manage to give it to another museum, may be put up for sale. They wanted to transfer everything to another, smaller room, but the regional budget has no money for such a business. Therefore, the option of selling exhibits to private hands is not excluded. The museum belongs to "Quant", the plant is nominally private. Although, from the territory there is almost nothing left, no one will give the status of a federal museum, so the fate of the exhibits is sad.
