A representative for the Defense Ministry reportedly told Izvestia:
"It has successfully passed a series of field tests at an ordnance range in southern Russia, and is already being used there in life-threatening situations."Oleg Zheltonozhko, military expert, told Izvestia:
"Demining robots have been used by foreign armies for quite some time now, suffice it to mention the British Dragon Runner of the American PackBot, but none of them deserves to be called a sapper."
"Because the manipulators to be found on most of the existing demining robots are fairly primitive, all they can do is get hold of the bomb and move it as far away from people as possible."
