The Ministry of Defense acknowledged the presence of special inspector satellites in orbit


On October 4, the Russian Defense Ministry informed media representatives on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the Space Forces that the Russian Aerospace Forces were conducting "experiments in orbit with spacecraft of foreign states." At the same time, the agency clarified that special attention was paid by the specialists of the Main Center for Reconnaissance of the Space Situation to control the composition and condition of the orbital groups of foreign space systems.


It should be noted that the department did not provide any details. However, it can be assumed that we are talking about special inspector satellites that are capable of not only observing enemy vehicles, but also incapacitating them. Thus, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation actually recognized their presence in the arsenal of its space (orbital) group, since the mentioned “experiments in orbit” are difficult to understand otherwise.

In turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the United States in the situation around Ukraine will use civilian infrastructure in space for military purposes.

Note that, by a strange coincidence, on October 3, the American businessman Elon Musk proposed in his blog an option to end the conflict between Moscow and Kyiv. In his opinion, the West and Ukraine should recognize Crimea as Russian, and Russia, in turn, should withdraw its troops from the remaining Ukrainian territory. Musk's initiative provoked an angry reaction on social networks, including in Ukraine and Russia.

The next day, Musk said, responding to criticism addressed to him, that he supports Kyiv in the ongoing conflict with Moscow. SpaceX, his company, provided Ukraine with Starlink satellites to provide high-speed broadband Internet access and spent over $80 million on this. At the same time, he and his company did not spend anything on supporting Russia, although there are serious risks of cyber attacks from the Russian side against SpaceX and himself .

    well, fir-trees-winders, well, why didn’t THEY say, at least by the Day of American Business Women on September 22, that their BPMAs were experimenting with underwater pipeline facilities in the Baltic and other seas? Why not extinguish a couple of their satellites without these toothless warnings of ours?

      Extinguish reconnaissance satellites over the Russian Federation completely up to 1000 km and declare a territorial air zone. Otherwise, the problems will only get worse in the CBO mode. Spy satellites are known, so shoot over the Russian Federation ... The Americans act impudently in their own interests, why should we be silly ...

    These highest achievements of the Ministry of Defense and Roskosmos helped out a lot during the NWO. Our orbital grouping now allows you to monitor the movements of any objects across the territory of Ukraine around the clock and take timely measures, and the enemy orbital grouping has already been practically destroyed! The lives of our soldiers are in safe hands.
    Well done, keep it up, success and prosperity to you, storytellers and traitors.

      You are the most kind. or you don’t understand anything, or a liar. Throw in some more hats, maybe we’ll throw in and win. Don't you know that our reconnaissance satellite system (Liana and beyond) has only 9 satellites, when it is necessary for 20. About what success, only about the failure of space reconnaissance. We can no longer track the oceans for a long time ... Where did we fall from with our urrrya,

    Satellites are used for military purposes in full. Thanks to their surveillance, many of our soldiers are dying. You can announce that the territory of Ukraine is a no-fly zone for military satellites and civilians selling data to Khokhlov. And in a week, start eliminating enemy satellites. Only in this way, otherwise all movements and places of deployment are known to the Ukrainians earlier than in Moscow in the Moscow Region.
