MOSCOW, May 28. /TASS/. The work on the Russian global navigation system GLONASS will be completed this year, the head of the Russian Space Systems company (RSS), Andrey Tyulin has said in an interview with the Izvestia newspaper.

"Now all the misunderstanding has been cleared up and the project networks have been signed and put under special control. In the near future, we will achieve the result," Tyulin said.

"The commissioning is a matter of the customer. For our part, we will complete that range of works that we are to implement," the RSS CEO told the newspaper.

Tyulin stressed that GLONASS should keep the status of a double-purpose system.

"A balanced approach is needed when deciding on the future of the GLONASS system and there should be a "not to harm" stance, and now there is no absolute answer," he said.

The Russian Space Systems company (RSS) is a leading Russian enterprise in design, production and operation of space information systems. One of its goals is to develop and use the GLONASS global navigation system. The first satellite under this program was launched in 1982. The orbital cluster GLONASS consists of 28 satellites that ensure navigation signal with a 1-meter accuracy.
