Russia deployed electronic warfare equipment in Northern Territories 

Saturday’s Sankei led with a report saying the Defense Ministry has concluded that the Russian military has deployed in the Northern Territories an array of equipment for electronic warfare, including small drones used to identify and attack enemy platforms by detecting and analyzing their data transmissions. While noting that this deployment of state-of-the-art defense hardware represents Moscow’s relentless efforts to militarize the contested islands, the daily quoted an unnamed senior GOJ official as saying: “The Russian military intends to make the neighboring Sea of Okhotsk a ‘stronghold’ for stationing strategic submarines and warships to increase its naval presence in the Pacific.”
