    According to the head of Russia's Advanced Research Fund, tests of combat robot systems will be carried out in Russia within a year.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Tests of combat robot systems will be carried out in Russia within a year, the head of Russia's Advanced Research Fund told Sputnik.

    "The first task which I think we will complete within a year is an assessment and tests through uniform methods," Andrei Grigoriev said.

    Future wars will be fought by robots and drones united in reconnaissance and strike systems, and soldiers will become operators, the head of Russia's Advanced Research Fund told Sputnik.

    "I imagine more and more robotics, virtually a war between operators and machines, rather than soldiers on the battlefield shooting each other. Military tasks will be solved with a minimum of personnel loss. The soldier will gradually transform into an operator and move away from the battlefield," Andrei Grigoriev said.
