The Russian military successfully conducted an anti-satellite test on the 15th

[China News Service Moscow]Russian Defense Minister Shoigu confirmed on the 16th that the Russian military successfully conducted an anti-satellite test on the 15th. Shoigu emphasized that the satellite debris produced in this test will not pose a threat to human space activities.
The Russian Ministry of Defense issued a statement on the 16th stating that Russia successfully conducted an anti-satellite test on the 15th and “hit the abandoned Russian spacecraft’Selina-D’ that has been in orbit since 1982.” The statement emphasized that the debris from the test will not pose a threat to the International Space Station and satellites.
In response to the Russian test, US Secretary of State Blincoln stated that the anti-satellite test runs counter to Moscow’s position that it does not allow the deployment of weapons in outer space. According to information released by the US State Department, the Russian anti-satellite test used a ground-based helicopter anti-satellite missile. The test produced more than 1,500 trackable orbital debris and hundreds of thousands of smaller orbital debris.
The US called Russia’s anti-satellite test “dangerous and irresponsible”, and accused the test-made space “debris cloud” of threatening the safety of the International Space Station and the astronauts on duty, and the astronauts of the International Space Station had to take emergency safety measures. US Department of Defense spokesman Kirby said on the 15th that the Russian side did not notify the US military in advance of the test. “The anti-satellite weapons that Russia is developing may pose a threat to the United States and other space powers.”
In response, the Russian Federal Space Agency stated that the astronauts of the International Space Station were disposed of in accordance with standard procedures and the space station was in a safe area. The astronauts are currently performing routine operations in accordance with the original flight plan.
