President Joe Biden’s administration has reportedly warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against launching an anti-satellite nuclear weapon into space.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the administration’s outreach to the Kremlin has included increasing pressure on other nations to also pressure Russia, as well as top Biden officials reaching out to their counterparts in the Russian government.

Apparently, part of Biden’s plan has also included insulting Putin, which he did on Wednesday when he called the Russian leader a “crazy SOB” who “we always have to be worried about” when it comes to “a nuclear conflict.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner (R-OH) brought attention to the matter last week by warning that a foreign adversary was working on creating a “destabilizing” weapon and urged President Joe Biden to declassify the intelligence surrounding the weapon. Subsequent reporting said that the potential weapon would be used to knock out satellites critical to U.S. national security.

Turner said that one of the reasons he brought the matter to the public’s attention was that he believed they were hiding their own inaction on the matter and he did not want to see the U.S. slow-walked into another national crisis under Biden.

However, after meeting with top administration officials, including Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, Turner walked away saying that he was confident in what the administration was doing.

“We all came away with a very strong impression that the administration is taking this very seriously and that the administration has a plan in place,” Turner said.


Putin and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu denied reports that Russia was looking to create a nuclear space weapon.

“Our position is clear and transparent: We have always been categorically against the deployment of nuclear weapons in space and we are still against it,” Putin claimed.
