Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This radar most likely won't work as advertised, so the actual reason for installing it is something otehr than missile defence. Surveillance of Airspace West of the Urals? Encircling of Russia? Pork for defence contractors? Creating new causes of friction between the EU and Russia?
