Expert talks about Russian weapon capable of shooting down enemy space satellites

Litovkin recalled the words of British Air Force Chief of Staff Michael Wigston, who said that Russia “has launched satellites into space, which allegedly have weapons characteristics”. According to the expert, Russia’s main weapon is on the ground.

“Our main weapon against satellites is on the ground, namely the S-500 Prometheus complexes put into service. It can easily shoot down vehicles in low orbit”, –  Litovkin said.

The military expert notes that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will indeed be able to destroy enemy space objects, but there is no need to put their own weapons into orbit for this purpose.
