In March, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in an interview with the agency announced the entry into the army of combat robots.
The task is to bring our man out of the defeat sector to a safe distance, but so that he himself saw the enemy and was able to hit him. Our goal is to turn a soldier into an operator of a robotic system capable of performing any combat tasks,said Rogozin.
