Russian-launched spacecraft maneuver near the American satellite and pose a threat to Western countries. This was stated by NATO’s Supreme Commander for Transformation, General Andre Lanata, in a commentary by the Washington Examiner.

“Until now, everyone considered outer space a safe haven. This is no longer the case,” Lanata said.
The general also questioned the ability of NATO member states to confront threats in space, stressing that this issue should be dealt with by each nation individually, not by the North Atlantic Alliance.
