Russia developing 'anti-satellite capability': US

The tension between America and Russia is well known. Meanwhile, the White House has made a big revelation regarding Russia. He said, Russia is developing an anti-satellite capability which is very disturbing.

Amidst the war between Russia and Ukraine, America is keeping an eye on every move of Russia. A cold war has been going on between these two big countries of the world for many decades. But one revelation from America is shocking. The White House has confirmed that Russia is developing dangerous 'anti-satellite capabilities'. This is a very troublesome thing. This raises the question whether Russia is preparing for a new type of major war in the near future!

The White House publicly confirmed on Thursday that Russia has acquired a dangerous anti-satellite weapon, which is troubling. However, the US said it cannot directly cause 'physical destruction' on Earth. White House national security spokesman John Kirby said US intelligence officials have information that Russia has acquired this capability.

However, no such weapon is currently 'operational'. US officials are analyzing the information they have on the emerging technology and have consulted with allies and partners on the matter.

This discovery by Russia is worrying: America

“First of all, this is not an active capability that has been deployed, and while Russia's discovery of this particular capability is troubling, it poses no immediate threat to anyone's security,” Kirby said. “We are not talking about a weapon that could be used to attack humans or cause physical destruction on Earth.”

Biden administration called it a threat to national security

The White House confirmed its intelligence findings on Wednesday after a vague warning from Representative Mike Turner of Ohio, the Republican head of the House Intelligence Committee. He urged the Joe Biden administration to make the information public, which he called a serious national security risk.
