MOSCOW, January 9. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations will deploy a space monitoring system in Russia’s Urals region that would help prevent and forecast emergency situations, the ministry's deputy head, Vladimir Stepanov, said on Thursday.
“A space monitoring station will be established in the Sverdlovsk District in the first six months of the year,” he said. “It will encompass the northern part of the Arctic Region, the Urals and the Volga Region.”
Stepanov noted that only 15% of the Russian territory had not been covered by space monitoring systems so far.
“This figure will reduce to five percent after the implementation of the new station,” he added.
