The Russian military can target GPS satellites and communications as part of the war in Ukraine, reports Space news.

The publication refers to the United States National Intelligence (NRO) Director Christopher Scholes speaks on February 23 at the Defense and Intelligence Conference of the Space National Security Association.

“I think we see quite clearly that Russia is trying to do what it wants to do in Ukraine, and it wants to win,” Skolez said. “So I think it’s fair to assume that to the extent that they can, and to the extent that they feel it won’t get out of their control, they’ll expand it into space.”

Attempts to disrupt the United States’ space capabilities could also affect the satellites of private operators such as Maxar, which distributes imagery of conflict.
