“On March 16, an SMM mini-UAV spotted an automatic jamming system (R-330Zh, Zhitel) on a KamAZ-4310 and a radio-electronic jamming complex (Tirada-2) near Yuzhna-Lomuvatka (60km west of Luhansk),” reads the report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM), based on information received as of 19:30, March 18, 2019.
The SMM has already repeatedly reported the discovery of various types of Russian radio-electronic jamming systems in Donbas, in particular, R-330Zh, Zhitel, Leer-3 RB-341B, 1L269 Krasuha-2, RB-109A Bylina as well as Repellent-1 anti-UAV system.
On February 10, the OSCE SMM spotted a modern Russian radio intelligence system TORN in the occupied parts of Donbas. This is one of the latest Russian systems used exclusively by the Russian Armed Forces.
The Ukrainian delegation to the OSCE has called on Russia to explain how its modern radio-electronic systems appeared in Donbas.
