March 15, 2019

Russia says it regards as irresponsible Washington’s preparations for putting weapons in space.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing today that the US steps taken lately to prepare for the deployment of weapons in space, including creation of a space-based missile defense group, confirm the growing need for international efforts to resist such irresponsible plans.

Zakharova said we hope for the prompt beginning of negotiations on this issue at the disarmament conference in the context of maintaining international security and strategic stability.
