Russian Defence Minister, Sergei Ivanov, has repeated Russia's threat of retaliatory action against any nation that puts weapons into space. "Russia's position on this question has not changed for decades: We are categorically against the militarization of space," said Ivanov. The Minister also said that Russia would not negotiate to reduce tactical nuclear weapons whilst other countries base their weapons outside their borders.

MOSCOW - Taking aim at the United States, Russia's defense minister Thursday threatened retaliatory steps if any country puts weapons in space and said Moscow won't negotiate controls over tactical nuclear arms with nations that deploy them abroad, Russian media reported.

While he mentioned no country by name, Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov's comments reflected persistent wariness over U.S. intentions, despite arms control deals and increased cooperation between the Cold War foes since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.

"Russia's position on this question has not changed for decades: We are categorically against the militarization of space," the Interfax news agency quoted Ivanov as saying during a visit to the Baikonur space facility in Kazakhstan.

Cant say that im surprised that they have restated their policy against the militarization of space. The Russians have a lot to lose if the United States militarizes space and they will resort to force to prevent it.

Cuban missile crisis in reverse? Lets see.
