WW3 tensions soar as Vladimir Putin ‘prepares to move Russian nukes into space,’ US fears | World | News

An ominous “national security threat” under discussion by lawmakers pertains to Russians attempting to put a nuclear weapon into space, two sources familiar with talks on Capitol Hill have said.

This is not to drop a nuclear weapon onto Earth but rather to possibly be used against satellites.

“It is very concerning and very sensitive,” one source told the ABC News, calling it “a big deal.”

Turner sent Congress a letter urging them to act on the matter which he said pertains to “a destabilizing foreign military capability.”

“So I am a bit surprised that Congressman Turner came out today,” he added.
