Ukrainian military destroys Russian radar jammer in video

Ukrainian forces launched an artillery strike targeting a sophisticated Russian radar-jamming system near Kharkiv, video shows.

The Ukrainian military released a 30-second aerial recording Wednesday of what they say was the aftermath of a fiery attack on an enemy military installation featuring the R-330Zh radar-jamming system.

The footage shows flames and plumes of thick, black smoke pouring out of the blasted installation.

The equipment, which is also known as “Zhitel,” was destroyed as part of a joint operation between Air Assault Forces and ground forces, officials said.

The video concludes with a graphic that reads: “Death to Russian Invaders.”

Ukraine said the system is “designed for automated detection, direction-finding and analysis of radio signals,”

The website Army Technology reported that the “Zhitel” machine is also capable of jamming satellite and cellular communication systems.

Ukraine did not identify the location of the strike, but Business Insider reported that armchair detectives on social media geolocated it to a hamlet outside Izyum, located 75 miles southeast of Kharkiv.

Russian troops were being pushed out of the region by Ukrainian forces in recent days.
