Glonass is a global satellite positioning system run by the Russian Ministry of Defence. It runs parallel to the U.S. GPS system and the planned Galileo system [currently being built by the European Union (EU) and European Space Agency (ESA)], and its signals can be reached by any user of a Glonass receiver globally (once all satellites are available).
