Putin's Unusual Retaliation Against the US.

Trending Now

Russian President Vladimir Putin has reportedly devised a unique form of retaliation against the United States, following years of American claims of space superiority and mockery of Russia's space agency, Roscosmos. This information comes from a report by the Chinese publication Sohu, summarized by ABN24.

According to Sohu, the United States has consistently asserted its position as the world leader in space technology, often claiming that its developments and achievements far surpass those of Russia and China. This stance has frequently been accompanied by derision towards Roscosmos, Russia's state space corporation. In response to these assertions and mockery, Russia has decided to present the United States with an unpleasant surprise.

Experts from China noted that North Korea recently announced the successful launch of a reconnaissance satellite. This achievement followed two unsuccessful attempts by North Korea earlier this year to orbit a satellite. The successful launch represents a significant technological breakthrough for Pyongyang, which even claimed that the spy satellite is already transmitting photos of American military bases on the island of Guam.

The launch has reportedly unsettled US allies, Japan and South Korea, raising questions about how North Korea overcame its technological hurdles after a series of failures. Speculation suggests that Russian assistance may have played a role.

This theory is further supported by a recent meeting between Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, where the two might have discussed cooperation in space technology.

Sohu's experts believe that Putin has found a way to cause trouble for the US from the East. The successful launch of the North Korean spy satellite is seen as an unexpected and highly unpleasant surprise for the US. Chinese analysts suggest that this event might not be the last of Putin's surprises, hinting at potential further collaborations between Pyongyang and Moscow that could continue to astonish the United States.
