Bloomberg on February 20, citing anonymous sources, said Russia is developing nuclear weapons in space to destroy satellites.

According to sources, Moscow currently does not appear to have plans to detonate nuclear weapons in orbit, but there is a risk of a nuclear accident that could disrupt a third of the satellites in orbit and devastate the planet.

Sources say the US has warned its allies that Russia is planning to deploy nuclear weapons into space this year.

Previously, a 2023 US Defense Intelligence Agency report said that Russia is developing a series of weapons designed to target individual satellites and may also be developing `systems that use

However, this source added, Russia’s new weapons do not pose any urgent threat to the United States.

Analysts who track Russia’s space programs say the threat in space may not be a nuclear warhead, but a high-energy device that requires nuclear power to carry out a series of attacks.

`It’s more likely that Russia is developing a nuclear-powered system capable of electronic warfare while in orbit, not in orbit,` said Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association.

The Kremlin rejected the US warning about Moscow’s new nuclear weapons in space, calling it a `malicious fabrication`.

President Vladimir Putin also stated that Russia opposes the deployment of nuclear weapons in space.

Russia and the US are the world’s largest nuclear powers.

The 1967 treaty, to which the United States and Russia are both members, prohibits the signatories from placing in orbit around the earth any object carrying a nuclear weapon or any other weapon of mass destruction.

However, in recent years, disagreements between Moscow and Washington have eroded the framework of arms control treaties intended to reduce the risk of nuclear war between the two sides.
