Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared that Russia does not intend to deploy nuclear weapons in space.

This statement was made during an operational meeting with the Security Council, emphasizing that space and the neutralization of potential threats within the cosmic sphere should always be a focus of government attention.

"We have already discussed the claims made by some figures in the West about our supposed plans to place nuclear weapons in space. I say 'supposed' because, as I have already stated and as we are well aware, we have no such plans," he highlighted according to TASS.

However, Putin continued, issues related to space and countering potential threats that may arise in the cosmic sphere must constantly be monitored by authorities.

"Let's talk about this today," the Russian President suggested, initiating the meeting before handing over to Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

The meeting also included participation from Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, the chairpersons of both parliamentary chambers Valentina Matviyenko and Vyacheslav Volodin, Deputy Head of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, Head of the Presidential Administration Anton Vaino, Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev, Director of the FSB Alexander Bortnikov, Head of the Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin, and the President's Special Representative for Environmental Protection, Ecology, and Transport Sergey Ivanov.
