The possibility of using space-based large scale laser system (based on the cw chemical HF laser) to protect the spacecraft against the impacts from space debris is shown. The most probable cases of space debris (that moves on elliptic orbits) approaching the spacecraft (that moves on circular orbits) are studied, such as when their orbits cross at certain angle or are located in the same plane. The technique of laser pulses impact on the space debris approaching the spacecraft is developed for the cases considered.
