    Chairman of the Federation Council's Committee on Defense and Security said that Russia may deploy new radar station in Arctic.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia may deploy additional elements of an early warning network, including a radar station, in its Arctic zone, taking into account the presence of US submarines nuclear submarines close to its borders, a senior Russian lawmaker said Thursday.

    "The early detection and warning system has already been built, but additional elements should be placed there, I think," Viktor Ozerov, chairman of the Federation Council's Committee on Defense and Security, told Sputnik.

    According to Ozerov, the additional elements could include a radar, as well as ground-, air- and space target-tracking systems.
