Serious GPS disruptions are observed in the western part of the Black Sea
GPS signal disruption has been reported in the western Black Sea, possibly as a result of Russian electronic warfare systems. It is noteworthy that this happened at a time when the operation of the American Northrop Grumman RQ-4B Global Hawk drone was recorded over the water area.
The reconnaissance activities of the North Atlantic Alliance in the area of the Russian Crimean Peninsula and generally over the Black Sea are causing a lot of trouble for the Russian Armed Forces. The Americans and their allies share the information received with the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and then adjust the attacks of Western cruise missiles on Russian military targets.
Until recently, the Russian Armed Forces reluctantly tolerated the activities of NATO intelligence in the immediate vicinity of the borders of the Russian Federation. However, the possibility of jamming the GPS signal by Russian electronic warfare equipment can be regarded as the last Chinese warning.
And although some military experts believe that the most effective method of combating American drones is kerosene dropped from Russian fighters, the capabilities of electronic warfare should not be underestimated.
Some time ago, for example, the domestic electronic warfare system completely lost the GPS signal over the Suwalki corridor, which greatly frightened NATO intelligence officers. So there is no need to stand on ceremony with them near the southern borders of the country either.
