Ukrainian drones successfully targeted the significant Voronezh-DM radar station located in Russia's Krasnodar region. This radar station partially monitored the territory of occupied Crimea.

According to Defense Express, information about a possible drone attack on the Russian radar station emerged yesterday. Today, photographs have surfaced confirming the damage caused by the drones.

Journalists note that the declared range of targets that the Voronezh-DM radar can "see" is up to 6,000 kilometers. This includes ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as "space objects."

An analysis of the coverage areas reveals that the damaged radar station partially monitored the temporarily occupied Crimea. Its primary observation vector, however, is directed towards the Balkans and the Mediterranean, as operational zones of NATO, and also Asia, including the Persian Gulf.

Potential Damage to Russian Capabilities The report recalls that Russia claims to have about 10 "Voronezh" radar stations, differing only in their operating frequency ranges. The one hit by Ukrainian forces operated in the decimeter wavelength range and could allegedly track up to 500 aerial targets simultaneously.

Russia also claimed that building such a radar could take about 12-18 months and cost around 1.5 billion rubles. However, it's important to consider not just the formal cost but the actual time to operational deployment. For instance, the "Voronezh-DM" near Armavir, which was hit, was formally launched in 2009 but was still on "experimental combat duty" in 2017. This indicates that the Russian Ministry of Defense considered this station to be "raw" or not fully operational.

The report indicates that the strikes hit administrative buildings used for personnel accommodation and the management of this radar station.
