Russia rejects United States-supported United Nations resolution to prohibit the use of nuclear weapons in outer space

Russia vetoed a UN resolution proposing a ban on nuclear weapons in outer space, citing US concerns about Moscow developing a nuclear anti-satellite capability. The US and Japan-backed resolution aimed to uphold the non-proliferation regime and ensure peaceful use of outer space. The potential threat of nuclear weapons in space has been heightened by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Experts warn that nuclear space weapons could wipe out satellite constellations. Russian President Putin emphasized the importance of space projects and nuclear capabilities. This veto highlights the growing tensions between the US, Russia, and China over arms control and outer space security.
