Newscast Media MOSCOWMoscow may suspend operations in Russia of the U.S. space-based satellite navigation system known as Global Positioning System (GPS) as of June 1.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told reporters in Moscow on May 13 that the operations of the 11 GPS stations on Russian territory will be fully shut down by September 1, if the United States does not agree until then to have Russia's GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) stations placed on American soil.

Russia's GLONASS provides the only alternative navigation system with global coverage in operation.
