"In the period ending 2025 (the period of the newly-adopted federal space program) we plan to fundamentally upgrade the group of satellites in orbit. We plan to carry out more than 150 launches. That done the Russian orbital group will grow considerably," he said.
Lately, Roscosmos obtained sufficient evidence of how important the group of the global navigation system GLONASS satellites is important to ensuring global security and upgrading the economy, he remarked.
