Russia Launches Counter-Satellite Weapon into Space

On May 17 (still 16th in USA) Russia launched what the US Defense Department says is another Counter-Satellite space-based weapon into low-earth orbit. Video Below.

The new Russia "satellite" is presently tracking near several U.S. Military Satellites.

This follows additional launches by the Russian Armed Forces in 2019 and 2022, which were also believed to have Deployed similar Weapons that could be utilized against U.S. or NATO Intelligence Satellites if a War was to Breakout.

A dead giveaway that the launch was actually a weapons systems was the giant "Z" emblazoned on the top of the rocket, clearly visible in the video below.   That letter/symbol is presently in use by Russian Army forces fighting in Ukraine.

Video from the Russian Space Agency:

Amb. Robert Wood, U.S. alternate representative for special political affairs in the United Nations, made the allegation during a May 20 debate in the U.N. Security Council on a Russian resolution proposing a ban on the placement of weapons of any kind in space.

“Just last week, on May 16, Russia launched a satellite into low Earth orbit that the United States assesses is likely a counterspace weapon, presumably capable of attacking other satellites in low Earth orbit,” he said. “Russia deployed this new counterspace weapon into the same orbit as a U.S. government satellite.”
