Putin: Orbital satellite cluster renewed, multilayer missile attack warning system capabilities expanded
SOCHI (Bocharov Ruchei). Dec 4 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has highlighted the precision of the operation of the common space system satellites, which are timely spotting the launches of ballistic missiles from any military bases.
"Our orbital group of military and dual-purpose satellites has significantly renewed in recent years, the capacity of the space multilayer missile attack warning system has been largely increased. Satellites of the common space system are timely detecting the launches of ballistic missiles from the military bases and from the basins of the World Ocean," Putin said at one of the traditional conferences dealing with military issues.
Satellites are also swiftly transmitting the data to the country's leadership and to the control boards, he added. "The efficiency of the work of this very important link of the aerospace defense has been reconfirmed at the Grom (Thunder) 2019 command and staff strategic drills," Putin said.

New U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, who has recently started his mission in Moscow, has given an interview to Interfax in which he speaks about priorities of his work and assesses the prospects of developing bilateral relations.
The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Russia Laurie Bristow, who is leaving his post, has given an exclusive interview to Interfax in which he speaks about prospects of relations with Russia, arms control, the situation in Syria and surrounding Iran, as well as other topical problems on the international agenda.
