The New York Times writes about this.

According to the newspaper, we are talking about Russia's possible deployment of nuclear weapons in orbit this year.

It is noted that American intelligence services are sharply divided in their opinions about “what” Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to do.

In addition, US officials themselves have admitted that they have little confidence in their own analysis of the likelihood of launching nuclear weapons into orbit.

Previously, the United States told its allies that Russia could soon launch a nuclear weapon or a mock warhead into space.

Also, Russian leader Vladimir Putin said that Russia was and remains against the deployment of nuclear weapons in space.
