Ukraine war news: Russia threatens to shoot down US satellites
Updated from Thursday, October 27, 12:53 pm: Russia has threatened to attack commercial US satellites if they continue to use them to transmit data to Kyiv during the war in Ukraine. Konstantin Vorontsov, Russia’s Foreign Ministry representative to the United Nations, complained that the use of US civilian satellites in military conflicts was a dangerous trend. mugAccording to a report on Thursday night (October 27).
“Semi-civilian infrastructure can become a legitimate target for a counterattack,” Vorontsov warned. Western countries thus undertake civil space travel, but also jeopardize many social and economic projects on Earth.
In Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, satellite imagery plays an important role in intelligence. Many Western countries are making data available for security in Kyiv. Ukraine has a partial information advantage here, as Russia’s satellite network, for its part, is less dense. Russia is capable of attacking satellites in space. In November last year, Russia shot down one of its own decommissioned satellites with a laser weapon, sparking international outrage.
