If the robopocalypse ever breaks out on Earth, at least the residents of the International Space Station should be safe.

Russian space agency Roscomos has just packed up Skybot F-850, an unsettling humanoid robot, for shipment to the ISS next week.

He's probably best known for starring in a Russian video in 2017 while wielding two handguns like a robo-Clint Eastwood.

Fedor has his own Twitter account, which delivers tweets in Russian from the robot's perspective.

Somehow this comes off as more menacing than cute.

You can check out Fedor in action in a video showing the robot moving in response to his human operator.
