The Russian Armed Forces have completed reconfiguring its land-based missile attack warning system and have patched up all gaps left after the collapse of the USSR, Igor Morozov, deputy chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces, said Saturday
“Last year we set up three radars for combat duty in Yeniseysk, Barnaul and Orsk, thus completing the peripheral radar field which had holes in it as some of its elements ended up in other independent countries after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Some of these were dismantled and we had to build from scratch to a certain extent”, Morozov told media.
He added that there is still some work left to do replacing old radars at some facilities. He emphasized the importance of this work in light of uncertainty around the INF Treaty.
