Roscosmos CEO promises to create ‘unkillable’ internet in Russia
Russian space agency Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin stated that launching new orbital satellite groups will make it possible to create an independent, ‘unkillable’ satellite internet in Russia, TASS reported. Rogozin further noted: ‘It is necessary for our country – for a country like ours – to have an independent, sovereign space Internet. And, correspondingly, the ground equipment must be as cheap as possible so that people could use it. Then we will be invulnerable. Right now, though, we experience pressure in this area.’ Rogozin also pointed out that laying optic fibre is ineffective for Russia, where 70% of the territory is permafrost.
