Roscosmos Chief Claims US Threatened to Disconnect Russia from GPS

Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin claimed that the US was considering disconnecting Russia from the GPS as part of its sanctions package.

“Do you know that today, within the framework of sanctions, the United States [of America] is considering the possibility of disconnecting the Russian Federation from GPS? I can tell you that such an issue is being considered,” said Rogozin.

Rogozin reassured Russian citizens that the GPS disconnection was not an issue because they still have their home-grown GLONASS system.

According to Rogozin GLONASS is just as accurate as GPS but did not elaborate any further.
