The World

September 07, 1986

A Soviet military journalist was reported as saying that the Soviet Union will not set up its own space defense system to rival the U.S. Strategic Defense Initiative. Col. Vasily Morozov, a military columnist of the Soviet Novosti news agency, was quoted by a Hungarian newspaper as saying, "There will be no Soviet SDI." The newspaper quoted Morozov as saying that Moscow will improve its strategic armaments at less cost than the U.S. space-based missile defense program, commonly known as "Star Wars."
