It was said by Donald Trump, addressing voters on a meeting in Kentucky. At the same time he hopes that in the nearest future Washington will be able to make up for lost time. Donald Trump the U.S. President "The Pentagon works on creation of the sixth type of troops in the American armed forces now — space forces. I gave the relevant decree. China already began to work on it, Russia already began, but we have the most remarkable people in the world, we make the best equipment on light, we do the best rockets, tanks and the ships in the world". So far any country did not place any arms in space. And if Russia and China also advance the USA, then only regarding organizational structure, the chief researcher of Institute of world economy and the international relations of RAS Vladimir Dvorkin says: Vladimir Dvorkin the chief researcher of Institute of world economy and the international relations of RAS "The statement for creation of space troops by Trump, what was told by Chinese what at us was told, is so far only all structural changes which do not specify the specific objectives connected with development of concrete types of arms yet and do not provide. Here what is important? Whether weapon in space which is intended for defeat of objects in space, on the earth, in air and at the sea will be deployed. Besides, also as far as there will be land, air and sea types of arms is important are capable to strike space objects. Here what is real war in space about which so far nobody speaks as there are no programs which are intended for placement of weapon in space. It is necessary to wait what all three countries will decide on. Meanwhile Americans have only antimissile complexes and we have prototypes, Chinese had too prototypes which are capable to strike single satellites in low orbits, all". Trump charged to create space forces last summer. However, funds for it were not included into the defensive budget of the USA of the next year. It is planned that they will be allocated in the 2020th. Earlier Trump repeatedly stated such idea. However command of the Air Force and the management of the Pentagon acted against as de facto space forces in the States exist many years as a part of the Air Force and strategic command. In Russia aerospace forces were created in 2015 by merging of the Air Force and troops of aerospace defense. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
