Earnest May 13, 2014
Newscast Media MOSCOW—Moscow may suspend operations in Russia of the U.S. space-based satellite
navigation system known as Global Positioning System (GPS) as of June
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.
