The Voronezh-DM strategic radar station was attacked in Armavir

Journalists from the Reporter publication published footage of damage caused to the Voronezh-DM strategic early warning radar station of the missile attack warning system (SPRN) in Armavir. The station, which monitors the operational situation in the skies over southern Russia, was attacked on the night of May 23.

Judging by the nature of the damage, the object was attacked by a Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or was hit by its debris as a result of interception. The published footage shows that both radar buildings were damaged. Ukrainian media claim that the attack was carried out by the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The Voronezh-DM station was built from 2009 to 2013 and is capable of detecting space and aerodynamic targets at a distance of up to 600 km. In total, there are less than ten such complexes on the territory of Russia, each of which is virtually unique. Despite the damage caused, they do not look too serious, which suggests the possible restoration of the early warning system’s functionality.

To date, no official statements have been made in this regard.
