Speaking at his annual news conference, the Russian strongman leader said the partnership was “strategic” amid growing tensions with NATO.

VLADIMIR Putin has revealed a new alliance with China to create space weapons that could unleash havoc in the West if its satellites were targeted.

As previously revealed by Sun Online, Russian and Chinese space weapons could send the West into the Dark Ages should it destroy satellites.

It is feared an orbital onslaught could shut down hospitals, crash the economy, knock out communications, and cause mass blackouts.

At his press conference today, Putin said: “We cooperate with China in the security area.

“China’s armed forces are equipped with the most advanced weapons systems to a large extent.

“We are even developing certain high-tech types of weapons. We are working in space, aircraft areas.”

The revelation of the alliance between Russia and China comes amid deepening concerns that Putin is plotting an invasion of his neighbour Ukraine in 2022 with more than 175,000 Russian troops said to have been detected on the border.

But despite the massive build-up of forces, Putin insisted he did not want a war with Ukraine.

He said: “We have clearly and precisely let them know that any further NATO expansion eastward is unacceptable.”

Last week, Moscow submitted draft security documents demanding that NATO deny membership to Ukraine and other former Soviet countries and roll back the alliance’s military deployments in Central and Eastern Europe.

Putin said: “Is it us who are putting missiles near the US borders? No, it’s the US who came to our home with their missiles.

“They are already on the threshold of our home. Is it some excessive demand not to place any offensive systems near our home?

“What would the Americans think if we decided to come to the border between Canada and the United States, or Mexico, and simply deploy our own missiles over there.”

Isabel Sawkins, a research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society specialising in Russia, told The Sun Online that Russia and China joining forces could “potentially could be catastrophic” for Western powers.

She said: “Bringing China into the conversation is a deadly addition for the West.

“This would mean America’s standing in the world will be absolutely shot to pieces.

“If you have Russia and China working together the US is going to go into absolute panic.”

“Because China is on its way up in the world. It’s not only a massive economy – they have so much power.

“You would have China working with Russia and them both having this anxiety over the West – and that brings them together. That’s a really terrifying prospect.”

Meanwhile experts told The Sun Online warned Chinese and Russian space weapons could plunge the West into the Dark Ages.

Power supplies, hospitals, businesses and transport networks could be disrupted as satellites are lost leaving those under attack both literally and figuratively in the dark.

British military chiefs have previously warned there could be an attack from space within the next two years – something which has also been dubbed a potential “Pearl Harbor in space” for the US.

Allen Antrobus, a military space expert at Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage, Herts, told The Sun Online he “absolutely” believed there was an increased threat of an attack in space.

His warnings echo those of other experts who fear that Britain is at risk of “an economic blackout of frightening proportions”.
