Rogozin said USA might strike on Russia from space


Military concepts of the USA and other countries include the possibility of using space for military purposes, said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on January 12.

“All today’s concepts professed by the U.S. and its allies suggest the possibility of swift global attacks on our country from the outer space,” said Rogozin at the ceremony dedicated to the 110th anniversary of Sergei Korolev.

According to him, the main problem for the space industry is national defense.

“Main things that modern Russia requires from the space are solutions for defensive problems which, unfortunately, are becoming more and more important,” said Rogozin.
