Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of a global space war. His meeting with the new head of Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, was devoted to creating another security shield for the country, URA.RU analysts explained. In their opinion, the authorities understand that the technological development of the US, EU, China is aimed at waging war from space, so it is important for Putin to take preventive measures.

The president began the conversation with the new head of Roscosmos without unnecessary preamble, realizing that his counterpart “doesn’t need to know anything about the rocket and space industry” – until recently, as deputy prime minister, Borisov oversaw this area. “You know the prospects, you know our competitive advantages, you know the issues that require special attention,” Putin said, specifying what was important to focus on in the conversation.

Borisov noted that Russia has created “a huge potential for basic scientific and technological work.” And it must be used to develop the country’s economy. “The industry is in a difficult situation and I see that my main task, together with my colleagues, is not to let go, but to raise the bar, and first of all to provide the Russian economy with the necessary space services. And this is navigation, this is communication, data transfer, meteorological, geodetic information and so on, says Borisov.

He assured that Roscosmos will continue to carry out the manned program. The priority remains the creation of a Russian orbital station.

Putin asked what are “the ideas of what needs to be done in the near future” in this direction. Borisov recalled that after 2024, Russia decided to withdraw from the project of the International Space Station. However, it will fulfill its obligations to partners until the end. “At this time, we will begin to form the Russian orbital station. I believe that the future of Russian manned cosmonautics, first of all, should be based on a balanced and systematic scientific program,” said the head of Roscosmos.

Putin’s meeting with Borisov is the first since his appointment as head of Roscosmos. Analysts associate it not only with civil projects. Under the current circumstances, military engineering projects aimed at strengthening the country’s defense capabilities and space shield are important in the work of the state-owned company.

“We are dealing with a situation where space is increasingly gaining the status of a promising theater of military operations. In the near future, our likely foreign adversaries will make maximum use of outer space to solve military-technical problems,” explained Alexander Mikhailov, head for the Bureau of Military-Political Analysis, to URA.RU.

It’s not just about building satellite constellations, which the US, EU and China are actively engaged in, to collect data, control missile launches and so on, Mikhailov noted. According to the analyst, for example, the Americans conduct experiments in near space and implement projects “aimed at delivering military cargo into orbit”. “In the future, we will talk about working with both laser weapons and high-precision and even nuclear weapons that the Americans can launch into space. Previously, everyone was held back by conventions on the non-deployment of nuclear weapons in outer space, on demilitarization. Now no conventions work,” the expert stated.

The need to “stop possible military space threats” strengthens the president’s attention to space and explains his decision to transfer Borisov, who served in the Ministry of Defense before the government of the Russian Federation, to the post of head of Roscosmos. “On the other hand, we must develop our own military-technical capacity to locate existing and future threats. If necessary, eliminate enemy satellites (for this we already have S-500).

And in the event of the outbreak of a global war, to shut down the enemy’s satellites as quickly as possible, to deprive them of the opportunity to observe, transmit information or hit our military facilities with weapons placed on them, “Mikhailov explained.

Marat Bashirov, a political strategist, also links Putin’s meeting with Borisov to issues of Russia’s security. “The security issues of the Russian Federation are directly related to space in the coming decades. This is a constellation of satellites, this is a space station, which is the backbone of many scientific studies. What was discussed between Putin and Borisov are purely practical issues. They apply both security and ordinary household services for citizens of the Russian Federation and countries that are friendly to us, says Bashirov.

Putin expects Borisov as a military man to strengthen the space sector, political scientist Dmitry Nechaev believes. “As a military man, Borisov will consider cosmonautics from the perspective of military breakthrough directions. In parallel, achievements in the scientific and defense fields will give a powerful impetus to the development of civilian products, the expert concluded.
