Russia vetoes UN resolution against nuclear weapons in space

Russia vetoed a United Nations resolution that was aimed at preventing a nuclear arms race in space.

The resolution was sponsored by the United States and Japan and called upon all nations to never deploy nuclear weapons in outer space. The resolution comes on the heels of recent reports that Russia is developing a nuclear anti-satellite weapon of some kind. The furor caused by the reports led the White House to issue a statement that the rumored weapon poses “no immediate threat to anyone’s safety.”
