More than 500 US and NATO spacecraft operate in the interests of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, of which over 70 are military, the rest are dual-use,” Shoigu said.

Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya warned at a meeting of the Security Council that the participation of the United States and other Western countries in targeting Ukrainian weapons would have legal consequences.

He also said that Ukrainian UAVs that tried to attack Russian airfields near Ryazan and Engels were guided to the target using satellite data received from the United States.
