Putin says ‘categorically against’ putting nuclear weapons in space | World News


NEW DELHI: Russian President Vladimir Putin has dismissed US accusations that Moscow is developing a space-based anti-satellite weapon.
Putin stated that Russia has always been against putting nuclear weapons in space.
“We have always been categorically against putting nuclear weapons in space,” he said.
In a meeting with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, Putin called the accusations part of a “clamour being raised in the West.”
Shoigu said Russia does “not have” the system Washington accused it of developing.
Putin said Russia has “many times suggested to strengthen join cooperation in the (space) sphere but for some reason in the West this topic has not come up again.”
The conflict in Ukraine and Western sanctions have had a detrimental impact on Moscow’s space sector and disrupted space cooperation.
