[Global Network Military Reporting] Russian Satellite News Agency reported on April 12 that US Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said at a congressional hearing that as an independent force, the US Space Force planned to be formed between 2023 and 2024. The idea is that the space force will be fully operational between 2023 and 2024, she said.
Earlier reports said that the Space Force would first be formed under the U.S. Air Force and then become a separate service. Wilson said that the time to join the army may vary depending on the situation.
At the end of February, President Trump signed a memorandum establishing the U.S. Space Force. One of its objectives is to defend the interests of the United States in space, resist aggression and defend the country, and project military forces into space, from space and into space. Russias top officials pointed out that in this way, Washington created preconditions for the militarization of space, intended to use outer space for military purposes, and Russia would be forced to take the same or asymmetric measures to deal with possible threats.
