Russian SPR-2M Rtut-BM jammer in Donetsk (coordinates)

On August 16, InformNapalm published an investigation [1] with the first photo evidence confirming multiple reports of the presence of the Russian SPR-2M Rtut-BM jammer system in Donbas.

The readers of informnapalm.org contributed to the investigation helping us to define the exact location of the SPR-2M Rtut-BM station. The photos were found to have been made in Donetsk, in the area of Topaz plant (48.0302113, 37.7560857 [2]).

The geo referencing was performed by Oles Kolomiets. [3]
