Rogozin: Space is the Next Sphere of Military Operations
OREANDA-NEWS. The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, responded to the words of US President Donald trump about the creation of space forces.
The Director General of Roscosmos believes that militarization in the space sector is inevitable. "Slowly but surely, this is happening. At Roskosmos, no one has any illusions about this," he wrote on Twitter.
US President Donald Trump announced the official launch of the US space command and said that space is the next area of military operations. The US leader said that space is an independent field of operations, along with land, sea, air and cyberspace.
With its intentions to use outer space for military purposes, the United States creates the prerequisites for its militarization, Moscow notes. Russia will have to respond to these threats with both asymmetric and mirror measures.
