MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces (known as VKO in Russia) will start operating in June this year, VKO Commander General-Lieutenant Alexander Golovko said on Monday.
The principally new branch of Russia’s Armed Forces will bring together VKO and Air Force.
"For Aerospace Defense Forces and Air Force, the Army-2015 forum is unique because it will take place when a new type of Russian Armed Forces becomes operational," Golovko said.
On June 16-19, the Russian Defense Ministry will hold an international defense exhibition Army-2015 in Kubinka.
