By 2018, Russia will have a unified space system of ten satellites, where the first satellite will be launched in 2015, Deputy Commander of the Aerospace Defence Major General Anatoly Nestechuk said in an interview with the Echo of Moscow radio station on Saturday.
Earlier, Russia’s Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said with the new unified space system Russia will be aware of launches of present and promising ballistic missiles across the world. He said the new system would replace the missile attack warning means, which were designed back in the Soviet times.
