Russian Federation has linked the proposed formation of the US Space Force and its intended withdrawal from the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty to the Trump administration's intention to dominate space. The new troops will establish by no later than 2020, promised Pensions.

An American "Space Force" proposed by President Trump will take shape within two years and bring military forces and civilian space security authorities under one roof, the White House has said.

But Pence claimed that Russian Federation and China already have military operations in space and said potential threats in space include anti-satellite weapons, airborne lasers, "highly threatening in-orbit activities and evasive hypersonic missiles". The Vice President reported that now to ensure space security, the United States employs about 60 thousand people.

Speaking at the meeting, Vice President Mike Pence said the White House will include funding for the Space Command in the budget proposal next year, with the goal of getting approval from Congress so it can be in place by 2020.

A lack of centralized leadership and accountability threatened USA ability to 'advance our national security in space, ' Pence said.

Earlier in the day, Vice President Mike Pence said the space force was essential to protect the US' assets, particularly satellites.

With his demand that the Pentagon create a new military service - a Space Force to assure "American dominance in space" - President Donald Trump has injected urgency into a long-meandering debate over the best way to protect USA interests in space, both military and commercial.

Pence further insisted that space is a "warfighting domain" for the United States, and that for the time being, the Outer Space Treaty does not strictly get in the way of America's militarization efforts.

"In the first phase (space forces) will not look like other, already existing types of Armed Forces".

However, he added that, starting next year, the administration trump will start the cooperative work with the Congress over the adoption of the law on the establishment of an independent space force.
