Russia Concerned By BrahMos Missile Data Leak by DRDO Scientist to Pakistan

Published

on

Highly classified data of BrahMos Cruise Missile leaked by DRDO Scientist has evoked concerns in Russia. The arrest of Nishant Agarwal, a Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) employee is suspected of passing highly sensitive information about the nuclear-capable BrahMos Cruise missile to Pakistan. 

Emphasizing that they did not have enough understanding about what exactly had been leaked, sources said Russia was fully confident in India’s ability to protect classified information, but “obviously such incidents should be of concern to both nations.”

Russia would be more than willing to augment security for such material, “only if required or requested by the Indian side,” said one source, reiterating that this incident would in no way undermine the relationship between the two nations.

“The fact that the employee was apprehended is a sign of the robustness of the Indian security system, and this incident will have no impact on our strategic cooperation, said another source.

Termed as the world’s fastest cruise missile, the BrahMos medium-range supersonic cruise missile was developed as part of a joint venture between the Russian Federation’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya and India’s DRDO.

earlier, Russian developed Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet successfully launched a variant of the BrahMos missile from the air, completing India’s nuclear Triad, or the ability to launch a nuclear missile from the sea, air or land. Though there have been attempts to diversify sources, however, Russian weapons continue to be the backbone of India’s military.
