Dmitry Rogozin, the current head of the Russian Roscosmos State Space Corporation, said that Russia will consider any cyberattacks targeting Russian satellite infrastructure an act of war.

“We will send all necessary materials to the Federal Security Service, the Investigative Committee, and the Prosecutor General’s Office for relevant criminal cases to be opened.”

Rogozin denied their claims saying the Russian space agency’s activity control centers operate normally and called NB65 “scammers and petty swindlers.”
