The Defense Ministry plans to put the Voronezh-DM radar station in south Russia’s Armavir into a state of operational readiness, as well as build several new radars to counter possible threats, the Space Forces commander said Tuesday.

The Defense Ministry plans to put the Voronezh-DM radar station in south Russia’s Armavir into a state of operational readiness, as well as build several new radars to counter possible threats, the Space Forces commander said Tuesday.

Lt. Gen. Oleg Ostapenko also told journalists that new radar stations will be built “to replace the current radar means and maintain continuous radar control of all missile threats.”

The Armavir radar will be the second facility, after the Lekhtusi complex in the Leningrad Region, to close a gap in radar coverage on Russia's western borders after the closure of radar sites in Skrunda (Latvia) in late 1998 and recently in Mukachevo and Sevastopol in Ukraine.

 With an effective range of 4,000 kilometers (2,500 miles) the Voronezh class radar has capabilities similar to its predecessors, the Dnepr and Daryal, but uses less energy and is more environmentally friendly.
