OSCE spots new Russian Torn radio intelligence systems in the Donbas

An OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) drone recorded images of the newest Russian radio intelligence system Torn in the territory of the Donbas which is not under Ukraine’s control, according to the report of the OSCE SMM in Ukraine.

“On February 10, the short-range, unmanned aerial vehicle spotted two BMP-1 fighting vehicles and a truck mounted with the Torn radio intelligence system, all parked in a residential area in Novohryhorivka in the Donetsk region,” the report reads.

The Torn system is currently undergoing field tests by the Russian Armed forces. This new radio intelligence system is available only in Russian Army. It has never been supplied to Ukraine.

In the Donetsk region, the SMM recorded more ceasefire violations, including about 430 explosions.

According to US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, Russia has been violating the Minsk agreements for four years.
