Russia's Aerospace Defense Troops are beginning to create four new radar stations as part of efforts to create a continuous radar field across the country, Russian Aerospace Defense Troops Commander Aleksandr Golovko said.
"Two modern radar stations entered service near Armavir and St. Petersburg. Preparations are under way for state tests of the stations in Kaliningrad and in Irkutsk. Work has begun to build four more similar stations," Golovko said at a ceremony introducing to the Russian president top officers on the occasion of new appointments and the awarding of ranks.
"This will enable the creation of a continuous radar field across Russian territory," the commander said.
