Russia no longer needs Ukrainian radars

Russia will no longer use Soviet-made radars in Ukraine due to its attempts to become NATO’s member.

Russia’s lower House of Parliament voted to stop using the radars but extended deal that calls on the neighboring state to maintain Russia's intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The move reflects strong military industrial ties between the countries, the AP reported.

Deputy Defense Minister Nikolai Pankov aid that Ukraine’s strong will to join NATO had made the military to reconsider the agreement.

Besides, the radars were considered too old to provide right data. The facilities had become increasingly unreliable and could produce wrong information on missile launches.
