Russian threat to American satellites: confirmation arrives from the White House.  Pentagon launches missile tracking system into orbit

The White House confirmed: there is one serious threat to national security American which “concerns Russian capabilities to strike i satellites Use in space.” This was confirmed by the spokesperson of the National Security Council, John Kirbywhich upon indication of the president Joe Biden he did not answer questions about the nature of Russian capabilities, much less whether they are nuclear capabilities, but reported that the US has been aware of them for some time. Meanwhile the Pentagon has sent a missile tracking system into orbit, part of a vast new effort to bolster the growing military presence in space.

The president did not approve the release of technical information regarding Russian anti-satellite capabilities, Kirby said, adding that the intelligence community has serious concerns about broad declassification of this information. “There is no active and immediate threat,” he said, adding however that Biden has ordered a series of actions in response.

The alarm was raised earlier in the day in Congress by the moderate Republican Mike Turner asking Joe Biden to declassify the information “so that Congress, the administration and all our allies can openly discuss the actions necessary to respond to this threat”. Mosca he replied by denying everything: “It’s another ploy by the White House to try, by hook or by crook, to push Congress to approve the aid to Kiev“, accused the Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov. A reference to the bill from 95 billion of dollars, of which 60 per l’Ucrainaapproved in a bipartisan way by the Senate but stalled in the House, where the speaker Mike Johnson refuses to put it to the vote because it lacks security measures on the border with Mexico.

The information, according to the New York Timeshave already been shared with allies and discussed today by the National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan in an unusual restricted meeting with the ‘Gang of Eight‘, the eight congressional leaders authorized to deal with classified matters.
The exact nature of Russia’s new nuclear capabilities in space is not yet clear and some experts wonder why Moscow should use atomic weapons to destroy enemy satellites when less lethal and sophisticated means are sufficient. Furthermore, it would do so in violation of the Treatise on Outer Space of 1967 between the USA and the then Soviet Union (which banned nuclear weapons in orbit and in space), even though Putin has already recently abandoned other agreements on arms control dating back to the Cold War.
