The source spoke about plans to expand the GLONASS system in 2021
03:31 18.06.2021

The source told about the expected replenishment of the orbital group of the GLONASS system in 2021

MOSCOW, June 18 - RIA Novosti.

According to him, it is planned to complete the production of the Glonass-K satellite with number 16 in July, but it will be launched only after testing a similar device with number 15 in orbit, which is scheduled to be completed in October.

Isn't Glonass a "military" payload and thus under the new FSB rules even stating it's launch date could put the person in legal troubles? What I mean is that we might start to loose NK as a source for anything remotely military.

Tell us which satellites will join the GLONASS constellation in the near future?

In addition, one device "Glonass-K" is in flight tests and will enter service in a few months.
