He was asked to comment on which appeared yesterday in the newspaper the wall Street Journal a publication about the plans of the capital of the United States to supply Kiev " the new radar station long range ", RIA " Novosti ".
"I don't have any ads on the issue of new equipment or new weapons. We focus on providing non-lethal assistance, and there are no plans to change this approach, " said Toner. Remember, spoke of mobile radar designed to detect artillery batteries. Their radius of action, as noted, is from 25 km to 50 km later, However, the magazine was informed that the authorities of America doubt the wisdom of sending to Ukraine of a new radar station, afterward as Kiev lost several issued U.S. antiminority systems. Was around 20, and they are either destroyed in the course of the fighting in the Donbass, or even lost. Remember, 3 radars AN/TPQ-48A LCMR in November 2014 were transferred to the Ministry of defense of Ukraine from the presence of the American army as part of a package of U.S. military aid to Ukraine for a total amount of 118 million dollars. In January 2015 two of the transmitted radar LCMR have failed. And on the 19th of February there was a video showing one LCMR radar, captured by militias in the area of Debaltsevo after the retreat of Ukrainian troops. On the boxes with this radar was applied serial number " 369 ", which corresponds to the number of one of the three stations, transferred to Ukraine in November.
