This time, the Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Verification of Agreements, Ilim Poblet, spoke. Her favorite cosmos theme. Therefore, she did not think long, but in the same breath accused Russia of creating military space lasers. They have already been put into low Earth orbit and are capable of destroying the spacecraft of the United States and its allies. Before the construction of the "death star", Moscow was a matter of days. Unfortunately, Mrs. Poblet didn’t say anything else, her vocabulary and air in her lungs ran out. And she left the media themselves to think up the “facts” for her.
By the way, the performance of this "space" lady coincided with launch October 25, 2018 from the Plesetsk launch site of the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle with the spacecraft of the Ministry of Defense on board. It has been put into a given orbit, “feeling” good, it has been assigned the serial number Cosmos - 2528, and it is already working in the interests of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
It should be noted that a few months ago Poblet already performed (according to the schedule) on space topics. Then she stated that she was very concerned about the "strange" behavior of Russian satellite inspectors. It seems to her that something is wrong with them (with the satellites). And think for yourself what she wanted to say and how to understand it.
