Both the U.S. and the U.K. has raised concerns on Russia’s potential satellite weapons in space. UK space directorate Air Vice Marshal Harvey Smyth informs that the satellite has the characteristics of a weapon.

Russia, UK, US, China, and other nations have agreed on a space treaty that specifies outer space to be explored purely for peaceful purposes and no weapons would be placed in orbit.
