Reznikov admitted that Russian electronic warfare systems suppressed GPS-guided munitions.
MOSCOW, July 5 – RIA Novosti. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov admitted in an interview Finance TimesThat Russian electronic warfare (EW) systems can suppress GPS-guided munitions and HIMARS MLRS.
For artillery, GPS-guided munitions and MLRS like HIMARS were “very accurate,” according to Reznikov. At the same time, he added, powerful Russian electronic systems have found ways to suppress them. “The Russians find a countermeasure, we inform our partners, and they create a new measure for this countermeasure,” Reznikov said.
Also during the meeting, Reznikov said that maintenance contracts were recently signed with the British defense company Babcock International, the French artillery manufacturer Nexter Systems and the German Rheinmetall, which is best known for the production of Leopard tanks.
Russia had previously sent a note to NATO countries for arms supplies to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that any cargo containing weapons for Ukraine would become a legitimate target for Russia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation stated that NATO countries are “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine. The Kremlin stated that pumping weapons into Ukraine from the West did not contribute to the success of the Russia-Ukraine negotiations and would have a negative impact. Lavrov also noted that the United States and NATO are directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine, “including not only the supply of weapons, but also the training of personnel … in Britain, Germany, Italy and other countries.”
