Russian Blocks US Backed UN Resolution for Ban on Nuclear Weapons in Space

Russia vetoed a UN resolution proposing a ban on nuclear weapons in space due to concerns about Moscow developing a space-based nuclear device. US President Biden confirmed Russian efforts to create a nuclear anti-satellite weapon. Before the vote, US officials warned Russia might be hiding something by vetoing the resolution. The US ambassador criticized China’s abstention. The resolution aimed to strengthen the non-proliferation regime and maintain space for peaceful purposes. Experts fear Russian space weapons could harm satellite constellations. Putin stated readiness to use nuclear weapons for Russia’s defense, prioritizing space projects and nuclear capabilities.
