I think the Soviets did have so called space mines in orbit during the Cold War. They were bascially satellites that could move near an enemy satellite and explode.
I'm guessing you don't know anything about orbital mechanics. While a satellite can be shifted to a new orbit, this "space mines" idea would be terribly inefficient.
Which the Russians eventually realized, and is one of the reasons they stopped using them.
