In Crimea, explained why NATO ships are unable to conduct reconnaissance off the coast of the peninsula

Conducting intelligence off the coast of the Russian Crimea turned out to be an impossible task for the warships of the North Atlantic Alliance, which regularly appear in the Black Sea.

According to a source in the region’s power structures, the efforts of Western sailors are reduced to zero by counteracting coastal electronic warfare systems (EW) located on the peninsula. It is reported RIA News".

According to the source, one of the aspects of NATO intelligence in this region is penetration into the communication and digital networks of Russia.

The interlocutor noted that in Crimea, the latest Russian electronic warfare systems are used in practice in real conditions: after their exposure, the unit’s ships turn around and leave, as not only the reconnaissance equipment ceases to work, but the navigation equipment settings are lost.

Recall that the peninsula, as a military outpost of Russia in the Black Sea, is a zone of special attention for the NATO fleet.

In addition to warships, which, using the terms of the Montreux Convention on the Status of the Straits, enter the Black Sea, active intelligence activities near the Crimean borders are also carried out by unmanned aerial vehicles belonging to the North Atlantic Alliance, which regularly fly around the perimeter of Russian borders in the region.

    ... by counteracting coastal electronic warfare (EW).

    - It’s stupid to consider EW a pill for everything. EW - makes reconnaissance difficult, but does not completely rule it out.
