The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM) has released the image of modern Russian jamming systems in eastern Ukraine.

A statement from the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission claims that the modern Russian radio intelligence and the jamming system has been spotted near Yuzhna-Lomuvatka (60km west of Luhansk).

“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)”, said in OSCE’s statement.

Ukrainian InformNapalm OSINT (Open Source INTelligence) platform also repeatedly says about Russian SIGINT systems in the occupied part of Donbas, Eastern Ukraine.

It is worth noting that if R-330Zh spotted in Ukraine, not for the first time, then the newest complex Tirada-2 has become a real surprise.

The Tirada-2 is one of the most modern systems of this type in Russian Army service. This is warfare jamming system specialized in disabling communication satellites. Some experts report that the Russian army uses this system to counter US high-altitude Global Hawk drone that repeatedly been spotted flying hours-long spy missions over eastern Ukraine.

“The development of this system began in 2001. The first time it was publicly announced in 2017. In August 2018, at the Army-2018 Forum, a contract for supplying the Russian Ministry of Defense with these latest EW systems was publicly signed, and in the autumn they were tested,” reported Ukrainian InformNapalm OSINT.

Russian news agency RIA Novosti also reported that Tirada-2 systems would enter service in the Central Military District in 2019.
