Dmitry Rogozin, Head of Roscosmos, said that the State Corporation for Space Activities does not harbor any illusions on militarization of space.
The comment comes after US President Donald Trump’s remarks about future space militarization.
President Trump has claimed that SPACECOM, the US Space Command, will be “soon” created and that the space will be the area of confrontation in the future.
“As the newest combatant command, SPACECOM will protect US vital interests in space, the next warfighting domain,” Trump stated.
Establishment of the U.S. Space Command! https://t.co/NQkxxw910S
