Russia's advanced technological capabilities have put it in a position to potentially target and neutralize American satellites that play a crucial role in aiding the Ukrainian Army. However, the repercussions of such a move are profound and include a considerable escalation of the ongoing conflict, along with the inevitable expansion of the conflict zone.
The prospect of this action looms on the horizon, serving as a reminder of the volatile nature of the situation. This observation was recently articulated by military journalist Alexei Borzenko during an interview on Komsomolskaya Pravda radio.
As the geopolitical landscape continues to evolve, monitoring and addressing these developments will be of utmost importance to the global community. "If Elon Musk's satellite system continues to get in the way, I think we'll just ask him, 'Dude, do you want us to shoot down your satellites in space?' The S-500, which is currently replacing the S-400, is a space-based system and anticipates shooting down satellites.
We could shoot down dozens of Elon Musk's satellites. Will he agree with that or will he exclude Ukraine?" said Borzenko.
"We are not touching Elon Musk at the moment, but he already reacted when he turned off his satellites for Ukraine"
However, he emphasized that such a move would lead to a substantial uptick in the conflict's intensity and a broader expansion of the theater of operations in outer space.
This calculated action would undoubtedly usher in a new chapter of conflict dynamics, underscoring the far-reaching implications it holds in this ever-evolving geopolitical landscape. "Technically, I say right away, we can do that.
But that would already be the beginning of a war in space. But we're talking about the beginning of World War III" - a war in space will definitely happen. "First, you must destroy the enemy's satellites to stop tracking your territory.
We are not touching Elon Musk at the moment, but he already reacted when he turned off his satellites for Ukraine. He understands that, if we want to, we can react immediately," the journalist added.
