The OSCE SMM monitors have recorded a system of electromagnetic warfare in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast on April 2. This is stated in the OSCE SMM report, posted on Wednesday.

The Mission's experts reported that it is referred to the RB 341V Leer 3 electromagnetic warfare system.

"The SMM saw an electronic counter measure system (RB-341V LEER-3) on a military truck (KamAZ-5350) near Konkove (non-government-controlled, 79km south of Donetsk), heading south on road T-0508 (in a zone within which deployment of heavy armaments and military equipment is proscribed according to Point 5 of the Memorandum of 19 September 2014)", - the report said.

As previously reported, representatives of illegal military formations in the Donbass claim that they are fighting solely with trophy weapons, that is, captured from the AFU. However, RB 341V Leer 3 has never been in service with the Ukrainian army. It appeared in the Russian army on station after the start of armed conflict in the east of Ukraine.

REFERENCE. RB-341V Leer-3 is a modern Russian system of electromagnetic warfare and radio detection, specializing in cellular networks of the GSM standard. A feature of the system is the delivery of EW and ESM to the target using unmanned aerial vehicles. Designed and produced in the Russian OOO Special Technology Center company (St. Petersburg). In serial production since 2015.
