Russia may resume launches of Satan ICBMs for civilian purposes


Russia plans to resume launches of RS-20 Voevoda intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) under the Dnepr program, which is designed to combine the disposal of ICBMs and the placement of civilian payloads into orbit, the Russian Defense Ministry told Interfax-AVN on July 23.
“After the Ukrainian participants in the Dnepr program withdrew from the Kosmotras consortium, the provider of launch services has every opportunity to implement the declared launch manifest. To resume the launches, it will be necessary to settle some procedural issues related to the cancellation of the previous decision on suspending the program,” he said.
“Such plans are being worked on now,” he said.
