The Ukrainian military left Crimea and didn’t take their equipment. The radar position is located right next to the road and looks, at first glance, not at all abandoned. When we arrived, we doubted very much that the territory was not guarded. After all, in the open air near small buildings, there were military trucks with antennas.
The rickety columns of the perimeter support, ragged barbed wire, and uncut grass. One thing became clear: the military is definitely gone forever since everything looks unkempt. First, we start the inspection of the equipment. We approach each unit and try to look at everything in detail. This is a portable diesel power generator on wheels.
Inside the trailer there is a diesel generator of small power, but capable of providing electricity to other radar trucks. The generator appears to be in excellent condition.
The position and all equipment were abandoned by the Ukrainian military when Crimea became part of the Russian Federation. According to the information that we managed to get from the locals, the Russian military guarded it too but did not use it for its intended purpose. We can say that all trucks were in conservation. Finally, there was no point in protecting obsolete cars, and everything was left to fend for themselves. Absolutely anyone can freely enter the territory.
The old “Ural” trucks have not yet rotted so much from the humid climate, but trucks still have everything ahead. The doors of the driver’s cab are open, you can sit inside.
All equipment is in place. When we discovered all this, we could not believe our eyes. How so? The object is not guarded, and nobody has stolen anything? To be honest, this is the first time we’ve seen such an amazing state of preservation. All devices are in place, all switches are working. The equipment is old, but very solid. Any urban explorer would be pleased with such an object.
