Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin stated on Wednesday that the country plans to open an antimissile ‘umbrella’ over its whole territory.
Russian Defense Ministry is considering the proposal on a rational missile defense option that has been suggested by the defense industry, TASS reports.
"The joint working group for creating the technical basis of Russia’s air and space defense, which I have led since 2012, has arrived at the conclusion that the industry and military scientists have managed to propose to the Defense Ministry a rational option of creating the country’s missile defense shield, including the ground and space components. Once Russia’s integral space system is in place, Russia will find itself under an anti-missile umbrella," he said.
Early this year, Russia had also announced the introduction of its new generation radar Voronezh-DM that will enter combat duty by the end of this year. This radar is capable of identifying ballistic and hypersonic targets 6,000 kilometers away.
The radar has spotted six launches of inter-continental ballistic missiles so far. The northeastern part of the Pacific and the North are within the radar’s area of responsibility.
The Voronezh-DM radar, built in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, is an integral element of the missile attack warning system.
