Reuters reported that Borisov also spoke with Russian television about its newest laser systems. According to him, “if the Peresvet blinds,” other next-generation lasers systems are capable of the “physical destruction” of targets.
Asked if the Russian military had deployed laser weapons in Ukraine, Boris confirmed that a prototype called Zadira has been used against Ukrainian targets.
Russian reportedly started using these new kinds of specialized weapons in response to the ongoing shipments of arms to Ukraine from Western countries. Borisov noted Russia has weapons more powerful than Persevet that could destroy satellites instead of just blinding them.
Borisov concluded his remarks by promising that these powerful lasers would eventually overtake the use of current weapons.
