New Russian ground counterbattery radar system ‘Leopard’ revealed in Donetsk. PHOTOS

Post by Admin on Tue May 24, 2016 6:32 am

Ukrainian volunteers managed to identify and define exact location of a ground counterbattery radar system SNAR-10 ‘Leopard’ (GRAU index 1РЛ232, NATO reporting name Big Fred).

This is reported by InformNapalm in an investigation based on a photograph posted by a militant on his social media page on April 22, 2016, Censor.NET informs.

Reference

Counterbattery radar system SNAR-10 "Leopard" is mounted on chassis of light multi-purpose armored towing vehicle MT-LB. It was developed in the 1980s by NPO "Signal" (currently Engels Instrument-Engineering Association "Signal", based in the city of Engels, Russia). It is a coherent radar system intended for acquisition of moving ground and marine surface targets in local terrain setting and protected by passive electronic radar countermeasures, as well as for directing artillery fire. Specific targets for acquisition are tanks, combat vehicles, firing artillery and mortars of an enemy.

SNAR-10 can provide remote detection of the following targets:

· Moving ground targets up to 17 km;
· Ground shell bursts from 4 to 10 km;
· Marine surface targets up to 30 km;
· Water surface shell bursts from 14 to 23 km.

"In this case, the very fact of spotting of this type of equipment is of secondary importance. The more valuable part is its exact position, which can be checked by personnel of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.

"Reporters had noticed the 1РЛ232 "Leopard" counterbattery radar system in the Donbas before, but those were within moving military convoys without exact coordinates. For example, in November 2014, a "Leopard" was even seen by foreign journalists.

"After more than a year, this machine was once again spotted by camera," the authors note.

For the sake of comparison, a publicly available image of this radar system with an appropriate view angle and better visible features is presented.


"When Soviet military equipment is seen in the hands of terrorists in the Donbas, Moscow's standard line is that this equipment has been "seized from the Ukrainian army." But in the case of SNAR-10 "Leopard" it gets somewhat awkward. During this armed conflict, there has been not a single report of the loss of this type of equipment or its capture by pro-Russian separatists. This fact was also mentioned in Western media, including ForeignPolicy magazine, known for its cautious stance in reporting on the war in Ukraine.

"Coming back to the photos of the militant near the MT-LB mounted radar, it is worth noting that there is heavy fresh dirt (soil) on the tracks of the vehicle, its windows and the whole body are covered in mud, suggesting an active current use of the "Leopard" radar in the field," the authors of the investigation note.

"It is worth reminding that the latest model of the Russian radar system SNAR-10M1 ( 1РЛ232 -2M) was also spotted by InformNapalm investigators in winter 2015 in the battle of Debaltseve. This modification was presented in August 2014 at the Oboronexpo exhibition as one of the latest models of Russian weaponry.

"The hybrid nature of the Russian war against Ukraine is manifested in a multitude of ways, including through mixed supply of legacy and novel types of weapons and equipment. This provides for achieving dual goals: cheap disposal of obsolete and testing of new types of equipment."



Volunteers also reminded that in early 2015 InformNapalm presented top 10 units of weapons, the presence and location of which in the Donbas proves direct Russian participation in the armed conflict, thus disproving the Kremlin's message about "civil war in Ukraine."

US ready to consider additional sanctions against Russia, - Coordinator for Sanctions Policy Fried

Post by Admin on Tue May 24, 2016 6:37 am

Official Washington expects that the EU will not lift the economic sanctions against the Russian Federation imposed in connection with its aggression in eastern Ukraine and is ready to consider additional restrictive measures.

The State Department's Coordinator for Sanctions Policy Daniel Fried said on Monday at a public event in Washington, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

He said the United States may consider further restrictions, adding that the issue has been discussed with the EU. Fried stressed that the US position on the economic pressure against Russia can change only if Moscow fulfills all commitments under the Minsk deal.

The U.S. official believes that the European Union will have a common position with Washington when considering its decision on the extension or non-extension of economic restrictions against Russia in June.

According to him, the EU always extended sanctions despite an opposing campaign in the media.

In this regard, Fried stressed that the West's stance in terms of sanctions must be concerted. Moreover, he said that the package of sanctions against the Russian Federation related to the occupation of Crimea will be extended until the sovereignty of Ukraine is restored, and it will not be tied to restrictions imposed against Moscow for its aggression in the Donbas.

He noted that the Ukrainian side should also fulfill its obligations under the Minsk deal, especially with regard to reforms and elections in certain areas in the country's east. At the same time, according to him, it is difficult to ask Kyiv to do that at a time when Russia fails to fulfill even the first paragraphs of the agreement. In this regard, he stressed that the cease-fire is predominantly violated by separatists and Russia.

Entrepreneurs coerced by rebels take to streets in Donetsk

Post by Admin on Tue May 24, 2016 6:54 am

Local small businessmen staged a protest in Donetsk against unbearable pressure by the rebels, blogger Denis Kazansky writes in Facebook May 23.

Even a real threat of being thrown into prison cells did not stop them. The bandits make forays on businesses making them pay staggering kickbacks on absurd grounds.

What should have been expected happened, the blogger says. 

 “The repression, the probability of which businessmen were warned about, happened. No one captures a foreign land to make its residents happy and rich. From old times, the conquerors came to plunder and rob. This time it was the same. And this is only the beginning,” Denis Kazansky says.

Medvedev’s Awkward Crimea Moment: ‘There’s Just No Money. But You Take Care!’ (VIDEO)

Post by Admin on Tue May 24, 2016 9:44 am



Politics in Russia is normally tightly scripted by the Kremlin, but every once in a while a bit of reality shines through.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev got a dose of that kind of reality during a May 23 visit to the Ukrainian region of Crimea, which was forcibly seized by Russia in 2014.

A video widely shared on social media (above) shows Medvedev being pummeled by relentless questions from irate locals who say their Russian pensions have not been indexed to the rising cost of living.

Initially, Medvedev tries to wave off the interrogation by saying “pensions are a separate topic,” but an angry woman off camera refuses to let him off the hook.

“They are wiping their feet on us,” she shouts, saying that her pension of 8,000 rubles ($120) is “nothing.”

After enduring a bit more haranguing, Medvedev concedes that no one in Russia has had their pensions adjusted for inflation yet for a very simple reason: “There just isn’t any money now. When we find money, we’ll make the adjustment.”

He then beats a hasty retreat, shouting over his dissatisfied interlocutor: “You hang in there. Best wishes! Cheers! Take care!”

And to underscore his “tomorrow, tomorrow, the sun will come out tomorrow” theme, a few hours later Medvedev posted to his Instagram account a lovely photograph of a Crimean rainbow............

France Said To Give Entry Visa To Blacklisted Russian Minister

Post by Admin on Tue May 24, 2016 9:51 am

France has granted Russian Agriculture Minister Aleksandr Tkachev an entry visa, even though he is on a European Union blacklist, the Russian Agriculture Ministry said on May 23.

There has been no official confirmation from Paris.

It was not immediately clear why France may have made an exception from EU sanctions enacted after Moscow annexed Crimea in 2014.

He headed a Russian delegation to an assembly of the World Organization for Animal Health in Paris that started on May 22.

Germany refused him an entry visa in January.

Some politicians in France have voiced support for lifting sanctions against Russia.

Last month, France's lower house of parliament voted to lift sanctions against Moscow in a nonbinding vote that went against the Socialist government's recommendation..............

Post by Admin on Tue May 24, 2016 10:24 am
