The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces are steadily augmenting their potential to detect launches of ballistic missiles and plan to put a number of new radar stations on duty by the end of the year, Lt. Gen. Alexander Golovko, the Aerospace Defense Forces commander, told journalists on Saturday.
"Radar stations incorporated in the [Russian] early warning system in Irkutsk and Kaliningrad will be put on combat duty and radar stations in Yeniseisk and Barnaul on experimental combat duty by the end of the year," he said.
