LATVIA TO INSTALL MILITARY RADAR AGAINST RUSSIA AND
BELARUS ON ITS TERRITORY

RIGA, November 29th, 2002 /from RIA Novosti
correspondent Anatoly Baranovsky/ -- The Latvian
Defence Ministry has taken a decision to install in
the country's east a three-dimensional military radar
TPS-117 to control the air space above the western
part of Russia and the whole of Belarussian territory
by next summer.

The radar will be installed in the village of Audrini
located in about 50 kilometres away from the
Latvian-Russian border, Latvian Defence Ministry state
secretary Edgars Rinkevics said as much at a meeting
with the administration of Rezekne and Audrini.

TPS-177 will become a component part of the Baltnet
joint system of control over the air space of the
Baltic states which, in its turn, will be connected to
the Nato air control system. The decision to install
the radar was taken in spite of protests voiced by the
local population.

Latvian Defence Minister Girts Kristovskis warned that
protests against the radar installation will be
considered "actions contradicting the state
interests."
