The US accusations against Russia that the Russian Federation allegedly tested anti-satellite weapons in space is hypocrisy. This statement was made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“To say that the Russian Federation poses risks to activities for the peaceful uses of outer space is hypocrisy to say the least. As you rightly said, there are no facts, ”TASS quotes him.
Lavrov noted that Russia prefers the United States to discuss concerns at the negotiating table.
Let us remind you that the US military issued a statement that the Soviet satellite “Kosmos-1408” was the target of the anti-satellite weapon tests allegedly carried out by Russia. The United States believes that the Russian Federation shot down a spacecraft, which created a space debris field. The State Duma replied that these statements do not correspond to reality.
