    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The testing of a mobile security robot designed to protect launch sites of Russian ballistic missiles will be completed by the end of 2016, Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, Col. Gen. Sergei Karakayev said Friday.

    "In 2016, we began testing a new automated security system armed with an auto-cannon at one of the missile regiments," Karakayev said in an interview with Rossiya-24 television.
