Russia's Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has proposed a special federal program to neutralize space threats, Roscosmos deputy head Vyacheslav Davydov said on Thursday.

The program should be coordinated by the Russian Academy of Sciences, he added.

"Russia should participate in all the relevant [international] R and D projects on the subject," Davydov said.
