Situated near Armyansk, Crimea, this radar system monitored a 380 km section of the front, protecting Russian installations in the occupied peninsula.

Following the SBU attack, space reconnaissance assets detected the shutdown of radar emissions from the system, rendering it unobservable, the source said.

The SBU's operation effectively blinded Russian air defense systems over a significant portion of the front.
