Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has proposed a special federal program to neutralize space threats, Roscosmos deputy head Vyacheslav Davydov said on Thursday.

Threats at the planetary level related to asteroids, comets and space junk necessitates significant financial, intellectual and manufacturing resources to counter through international efforts, he said.

The program should be coordinated by the Russian Academy of Sciences, he added.

“Russia should participate in all the relevant [international] R&D projects on the subject,” Davydov said.
