On March 12th Interfax.ru reported that the CEO of the State Corporation Rostec, Sergey Chemezov, said that Russia has weapons to use against the swarm of tiny drones recently demonstrated in the US.
"The JSC company, Radio-Electronic Technologies, has created a system of electronic warfare which renders the control systems of these drones useless." The installed radio electronic equipment burns down and the drone becomes just a piece of metal," he said in an interview with Vesti Nedeli, which was broadcast in the far east of Russia.
At the same time, Chemezov clarified that Russian engineers have been working on such a weapon in advance. "We were working on the development of the weapon earlier, some work was already done in advance," the CEO of the State Corporation said.
