Russia began producing prototypes prospective missile defense system, part of which are already being tested at the Sary-Shagan in Kazakhstan. On this, as reported by RIA Novosti, said Russian Space Troops Commander Oleg Ostapenko. What kind of samples is a promising Russian missile defense question, Ostapenko did not elaborate.

In July 2010, the Russian Air Force Commander Col. Gen. Alexander Zelin said the new air defense missile system S-500 created by Concern PVO "Almaz-Antey", will be a key component of the missile defense Russia. In this case, Zelin said the Russian missile defense will have little in common with a similar system established in the United States. As expected, the first S-500 would be adopted in 2015.
