    The electronic warfare (EW) units of Russia’s Eastern Military District, located in the East Siberian Republic of Buryatia, held a large-scale military exercise using modern equipment, the Defense Ministry said in a statement issued on Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the ministry, some 100 military personnel "deployed up to 10 EW centers and stations" in the training area, including brand-new Borisoglebsk 2 electronic warfare systems, which is capable of suppressing mobile satellite communication and radio navigation systems.

    Compared to the previous generation of this system, the Borisoglebsk 2 has a wider range of radio surveillance and suppression, higher-speed frequency scanning and greater precision in locating sources of radio wave emissions.
