Russia threatened to destroy space assets transferred to Ukraine for military purposes

Russia will consider as legitimate targets for liquidation space hardware that the West will transfer to Ukraine for military purposes. This was stated in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

Components of civilian infrastructure in space provided to Ukraine for military purposes may become a legitimate target for retaliation

- emphasized on Smolenskaya Square.

It should be noted that the warning of the diplomatic department of the Russian Federation was published against the background of statements by the Ukrainian military about the need to disable Russian satellites. The intention of the United States to take this step some time ago was told by the head of the Military Space Academy. Mozhaisky Major General Nikolai Nestechuk.

According to him, the United States specifically creates small combat space assets and launches them, masking them by launching Starlink and OneWeb vehicles into space. Nikolai Nestechuk did not rule out the threat of a space attack on Russian communications satellites.

This threatens to lose control of Russia's strategic nuclear forces

Nestechuk said.

Recall that a few days ago, SpaceX, owned by the American billionaire Elon Musk, limited Ukrainian military access to Starlink satellite communications to control drones.

The Starlink communication system was not developed by specialists in order to eventually turn into a weapon. There are tools that we can use to ensure that our system is not used in this format. And we used these tools

- explained their decision in an American company.

      I agree. Even if we assume that Nudol can shoot down real satellites, the starlink and the waneb have thousands of them ... And again, when our group is destroyed, who will direct these missiles - I very much doubt that they are guided from the ground ...

        Nudol can, but there will be a sea of ​​​​garbage in space. no one will like it later, tk. knocking down an enemy satellite, all the rest in neighboring orbits will fall under the distribution of fragments.
        so nudol is not an option. you need an interceptor. Americans worked in this direction

    But something else is surprising to me, they know that they can’t and won’t shoot down anything - why make such loud statements (for an internal TV viewer?), It starts to remind me of the BNE era, when he could growl at someone in a bad mood or blame Chubais for everything ... while leaving everything as it is ...

    To date, 1 rocket launch brings out 50-60 Starlink satellites.
    To shoot them down - you need 1 rocket for each.
    Think for yourself, think for yourself.

      If they prove that the United States was involved in undermining the joint venture, their hands will be untied. If it comes to a collision with NATO, the satellites will have to be burned immediately, with high-altitude nuclear explosions

    Such statements from the Russian Federation are not perceived by the West at all, because there is no further continuation, everyone remains empty threats. Finally, you need to fulfill what was said, then they will perceive. Now the Russian Federation is not respected, because there are many words, no actions. Why this happens is a question for the staff in the positions.

    Yes, everything is simpler here than even with red lines. And they never lied! In general, they will destroy Starlink plates in Ukraine)))
