What are the Artemis Accords?

Apr 9, 2020
Not one mention of neither China nor Russia signing the Artemis Accords -- which therefore does not address the elephant in the room (or the elephant on the Moon): What happens when one country claims a piece of the Moon as its own, over the objections of other countries? What happens when more than one country has its aims set on the same specific region -- such as the poles where ice exists in the shadows? What happens when one country acts aggressively against another when on the Moon? (Is a 'war' declared on the Moon or even on Earth?). I doubt China nor Russia will ever sign these accords because their space exploration goals are inwardly focused but not to improve man's knowledge or well-being. Conflicts in space await us.
