This is same cold war nonsense the Russian Navy and US Navy engage in by playing chicken with ships and lives, except its in space. Considering the global climate crisis in which the primary fossil fuelish offenders are Russia, China, and the US, you'd expect they would (all together) have higher security priorities than spying on each other, like cooperating or competing or both in the global transition to a clean and sustainable energy economy. Either way, thermal nuclear war or global heating will both destroy the planet's habitability.
