Critical $100M Russian Radar System 'Nebo-U' Destroyed: Kyiv
Ukrainian forces have knocked out a Russian long-range radar system outside of the country's borders, according to Ukrainian media. The attack is the latest of Ukraine's reported strikes on Moscow's assets keeping track of Ukrainian positions and movements.
Ukraine's security service targeted a "modernized" Russian Nebo-U long-range radar system in the Bryansk region, which borders northeastern Ukraine, several Ukrainian outlets reported, citing anonymous sources in Ukraine's SBU.
Kyiv's forces used seven kamikaze drones to attack the radar system, according to Ukrainian media. It is "no longer operational," an SSU source told The Kyiv Independent. The SSU is also referred to as the SBU.
The system comes with an estimated price tag of $100 million, domestic media reported. Several outlets also reported the loss of another Nebo-U radar system in Russia's Belgorod region on an unspecified date.
Newsweek has reached out to the Russian Defense Ministry for comment via email.
Ukraine has frequently publicized what it describes as successful strikes on Russian radar systems. Ukraine's military said it had targeted a Nebo radar system in September 2023, then again in November.
By eliminating the Kremlin's radar systems, Ukraine can more easily hide its own assets and movements from Russian troops. --->READ MORE HERE
