A new branch of the armed forces of Russia – aerospace forces that combine air force and Aerospace Defense force – will appear on Dec. 1, a senior representative of the Defense Ministry told ITAR- TASS on May 19.

The source in the ministry added that Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky being Chief of operational control of the General Staff was discussed as a candidate for the post of Commander of the new branch of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

It-s highly probable that new forces will include artillery and rocket forces, including missile complexes “Iskander”, which are able to hit elements of the European missile defense more effectively than assault and bomber aviation.
