The crippling of American military satellites is the new Russian electronic warfare aircraft capable of provoking a retaliatory strike using nuclear weapons, writes The National Interest.
Us magazine notes that this possibility is envisaged by the draft of a new “nuclear posture Review”, where separately noted the right of States to use nuclear weapons in response to a kinetic or cyber attack American satellites.
“If Russia can effectively disable electronics on American satellites, “nuclear posture Review” does reflect U.S. policy, a disconnection of a satellite can be interpreted as an act of war, sufficient to justify a nuclear response,” the newspaper writes.
In July 2018, a source in the defense industrial complex reported that in Russia created a plane that can disable military satellites. According to him, the new machine will replace the Russian HQs in supply today, the aircraft electronic warfare Il-22ПП “Porobic”.
