The use of civilian satellites by the United States raises questions from the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Konstantin Vorontsov, Deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control, pointed out that the components of the United States civil space infrastructure used for combat operations in Ukraine remain a legitimate target for Russia's retaliatory strikes.

- Such activities, in fact, constitute indirect participation in armed conflicts. We denote that such a quasi-civilian space infrastructure may turn out to be a legitimate target for a retaliatory strike," TASS quoted Vorontsov as saying.

At the end of the vulgar year, another representative of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Vladimir Ermakov, spoke about this. He stressed that the "quasi-civilian infrastructure" of the United States could become a legitimate target for retaliatory actions on the part of Russia.
