The Eastern Military District (EMD) of the Russian armed forces will begin operating a new radar complex in the Zabaikalsky Krai from 2018, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 20 September.

The complex, Sopka-2, has been designed to receive and analyse air traffic and airspace data, and is capable of identifying each aircraft flying in a group.

The radar complex has been operating successfully on Wrangel Island since it entered service in 2016.
