Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Lead Republican of the House Armed Services Committee, released a statement following reports that Russia tested an anti-satellite weapon.
"The reports that Russia has tested an anti-satellite weapon are concerning and exactly why we stood up Space Command and created the Space Force. Space has already become a warfighting domain. The Biden administration must back rapid defense modernization with a focus on space. I am afraid that this test, like the 2007 Chinese anti-satellite test, will impact space for many years to come."
