Russia’s invading forces have set up a radar station outside Kerch in Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea, RFE/RL’s Krym-Realii and Skhemy media projects reported on April 18.
A military object was spotted on the E97 highway to the right of the road toward Kerch.
A radar system could be seen next to the object near the Olivia stone quarries. Journalists published the image on April 17.
After analysis, it was determined that construction of the object began on July 24, 2022, and was operational the next month. It was not seen in Google Maps images in 2021.
Zelenskyy’s Representative in Crimea, Tamila Tasheva, said in an interview with NV Radio on March 26 that Russian invaders are “panicking” and digging trenches along the entire coastline of the peninsula.
These fortifications are visible on numerous satellite images published in recent weeks.
