The Russians have been engaging in GPS signal manipulation for some time now.  The Norwegians have been complaining about it in northern Norway.  I suspect that in this case it is part of security measures, which may say a lot about how safe Putin feels.

It appears that India has joined the ASAT club.  Next to nukes, IMHO, having an ASAT capability will come to define what is a first rate military power in the future.  I predict that in the not too distant future, we’ll see a war where the participants go after each others satellites.
