Now, far be it from me to suggest Russia’s forces in Ukraine are made up of dimwitted fools without a brain cell to share amongst them… but it’s probably not a good idea to try and hide a Russian army radar system under a giant Ukrainian flag. The bright blue and yellow colours of Ukraine’s flag tend to SCREAM come look over here, and that’s probably why the OSCE took the picture seen below. Me thinks Russia’s cannon fodder are in desperate need of some very basic camouflage training.
The above OSCE image was taken on Feb 15th 2021. In Ukraine’s Luhansk region, the locations at the Russia’s forces base outside the village of Buhaivka, approx. 30km south-west of the occupied city of Luhansk. It shows a Russian 51U6 Kasta-2E1 target and acquisition radar. This is said to be the first time this system has been seen inside occupied Ukraine. For more info on it, I recommend you read the excellent report from Inform Napalm, who first published this OSCE image. Link to Feb 17th OSCE report on radar system sighting.
These radars are designed to track airborne targets such as planes, but with no military planes flying over the conflict zone, they track Ukrainian and OSCE UAV. The OSCE image shows several Ukrainian flags joined together, including the one in the foreground which is turned over, partially hiding the flags colours.
