Roskosmos: Trump tries to occupy other planets
On April 7, 2020 on the website "Roskosmos" there was a message in which the state corporation accuses the president USA Donald Trump of attempts of occupation of other planets. It was said by the deputy head of Roskosmos for the international cooperation Sergey Savelyev.
According to him, the decree of the American leader in support of commercial mastering of resources on the Moon and other celestial bodies serves as attempt of expropriation of space.
Donald Trump signed the document in which it is said that the United States do not consider space as global property. Citizens of the USA should have the right to get and use resources on other celestial bodies. The White House considers space unique space for human activity, but not public property therefore are going "stimulate the international support of production and use of resources in space".
Savelyev says that attempts of expropriation of space and aggressive plans for the actual annexation of territories of other planets hardly configure the countries on effective cooperation.
|In the history there were already examples when one country decided to begin to occupy territories in the interests — all remember what from this left — he emphasized.|
Earlier Trump demanded to send "at any cost" Americans to the Moon within the next five years. After this NASA announced the space Artemis program consisting of two stages — disembarkation of crew with the first woman on the Moon and flights on the satellite for creation infrastructures there.
In the presidential decree signed in April, 2020 it is also said that the USA does not intend to recognize the Agreement on activity of the states on the Moon and other celestial bodies adopted by the resolution of General Assembly of the UN in December, 1979. In this agreement it is specified that all member countries try not to allow transformations of the Moon into the area of the international conflicts and also "are full of determination to assist on the basis of equality to further development of cooperation between the states in a research and use of the Moon and other celestial bodies".
