In early October, the General staff of the Russian Armed forces said that the us missile defence system (NMD) represents a threat to the free use of outer space by other States.

Posenichi recalled that in 2008, Americans have destroyed their own emergency satellite, which was at an altitude of about 250 km, training missiles “Standard-3” modification 1A, launched from aboard the USS Lake Erie. Russia and China then raised the fear that the situation with emergency satellite States used to test a national missile defence. However, in Washington these assumptions are rejected.
According to Posnaia, advanced interceptor missiles “Standard-3” versions of 2A with an increased area of the lesion, as well as GBI missiles much more, allowing them to destroy space vehicles of the Russian and Chinese space groups.
