Russia's space defense troops spot foreign spying satellites

A group of electronic reconnaissance satellites disguised as space junk has been disclosed by Russian aerospace defense troops. The devices were put into orbit to spy specifically on facilities on Russian territory.

“Most recently, experts of the Main Space Intelligence Center disclosed a tyro group of electronic reconnaissance satellites. This satellite constellation is being developed to carry out communications surveillance of the facilities based inside Russian Federation territory," commander of the Space Command, Major-General Oleg Maidanovich, informed Zvezda TV channel.

The developed satellites were disguised as space trash, which is a normal practice, noted the commander.

Major-General was reluctant to report on state affiliation of the exposed space vehicles, saying “So far, there is no need for this.”

Maidanovich said that one of the top priority tasks of the space command is to reveal satellite constellation in development.

You don't reckon that the Boeing X-37 space plane has been visiting debris fields to leave a 'package' amongst the trash do you?
Have you noticed since everyone has a cell phone these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?

Is there even one industrialized country in this world that doesn't KNOW that "spy satellites" from various countries are in orbit around this earth, just looking (and listening) to what is to see and hear?? Spy satellites have been pretty well defined on the net for a long time! Spy satellites are pretty much SOP, and certainly none of the major countries would be surprised by such news as this, doncha think?

Actually, if these space-junk looking satellites were actually a significant problem for Russia, Russia most likely would not be making them public either. :)
