Russia: Space Nuke Rumors ‘Malicious Fabrication’ To Push More Ukraine Funding

After a mysteriously-timed warning from U.S. officials about Russia supposedly developing nuclear weapons in space, a spokesperson for the Kremlin has asserted that the U.S. is lying to intimidate Congress into sending more taxpayer money to Ukraine.

On Thursday, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov issued a statement declaring that the rumors of Russian space nukes are a farce meant to scare the House of Representatives into pushing through the Senate’s massive aid package to Ukraine.

“It is obvious that the White House is trying, by hook or by crook, to encourage Congress to vote on a bill to allocate money; this is obvious,” Peskov said, adding: “We’ll see what tricks the White House will use.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov also slammed the rumors as a “malicious fabrication” — arguing that the U.S. has been “making up” stories designed to make Russia the boogeyman for a decade now.

“We have seen these reports. This is part of a trend that has been there for a decade, with the Americans making up malicious stories and ascribing to us some actions and intentions that they don’t like,” Ryabkov told a Russian media outlet.

“In working with them, we keep telling them that groundless allegations of any kind will get no reaction from us. If they make some claims, they should at least provide evidence,” he added, referencing the Biden administration.

Both Peskov and Ryabkov have declined to go into detail about the allegations until they have more information.

“So we’ll see how things will unfold in this regard. So far, we are just monitoring what is being said there, on the matter, that is, the official versions,” Ryabkov said.

Meanwhile, these rumors were conveniently timed to coincide with news that Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) was refusing to even bring the Senate’s massive foreign aid bill to a vote in the House because RINOs and Democrats in the Senate are prioritizing funding foreign wars over helping and protecting Americans.

Soon after Johnson’s announcement that the foreign aid bill was dead on arrival, pro-war House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) began the rumors about a “serious national security threat” from Russia and demanded that President Joe Biden declassify any material about the threat in order to fearmonger and convince the growing number of Americans skeptical about Ukraine aid to reverse their stance.

Turner suggested that Russia was “developing a nuclear-capable weapon that could take down U.S. satellites,” according to U.S. officials who spoke with CBS News.

Russian authorities have further asserted that there is absolutely no proof that Russia has deployed any type of nuclear weapons into space.
