“Russian radio-technical facilities during July 17 were recording the work of the 9s18 Kupol radar station of the Buk-M1 squadron, stationed in the area of the Styla settlement (30 km south of Donetsk),” the ministry added.
The ministry stressed that technical features of the Buk-M1 air defense system allow it to exchange information between the squadrons of one battalion. “Thus, the launch of the missiles could also be made from all the squadrons, located in the Avdeyevka settlement (8 km north of Donetsk) or in Gruzsko-Zaryanskoye (25 km east of Donetsk),” Russian Defense Ministry stressed.
The Russian Defense Ministry previously reported that Kiev’s statements to the effect that Ukraine’s anti-aircraft defense systems or planes of the Ukrainian armed forces on July 17 did not fire on air targets, cause serious doubt.
The ministry also stressed that on July 17, the air defense means of the Russian armed forces were not working in that area and Russian Air Force planes were not flying in the Russian regions, bordering on the Ukrainian Donetsk region. “This information is fully confirmed by the air data recorders,” the ministry added.
