    A Russian manufacturer has designed an advanced new system protecting any channels of telephone communication against wiretapping, media reports said on Thursday.

    "This is a very interesting solution and we hope there will be a great demand for it on the market,” Interstate Corporation of Development general director Ivan Polyakov said.

    He added that components for the new system were produced directly at the company’s enterprises in Russia.

    The ICD was prompted to develop the system by the need to ensure its own security.

    Established in 2011, the Interstate Corporation of Development is engaged in scientific, industrial and high-tech cooperation in countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization.

    It is one of the main designers and producers of protected systems of communication and control in the former Soviet Union.
