Missile attack warning radar stations to be built in Murmansk Region and Komi Republic
New Voronezh-type missile attack warning radar stations will be built in the Murmansk Region and in the Komi Republic, TASS news agency reports quoting Colonel Viktor Timoshenko, Chief of Staff at the Main Center for Missile Warning of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
"Work is underway to build a station near Vorkuta and in the Murmansk Region," he said.
Russia has seven early warning stations, including five that were built over the past four years. Radar stations are currently under construction in Yeniseisk, Barnaul and Orsk.
The Russian missile attack warning system can detect individual or large-scale missile launches anywhere in the world.
