Liars — Another Epithet for the Russian “Army”

Russia uses deception missiles in the war against Ukraine to bypass Ukraine's air defenses

US intelligence has established that the ballistic missiles that Russia is firing at Ukraine are equipped with deceptions that can bypass air defense radars and thermal search missiles. In particular, Iskander-M short-range ballistic missiles, which the Russian Federation launches from its territory, are equipped with such deceptions.

"Each is filled with electronics and generates radio signals that muffle or counterfeit enemy radars trying to locate Iskander-M and contain a heat source to attract approaching missiles," The New York Times.

American spies have also shown what these devices look like: they are about 30 cm long, have the shape of a dart, and are painted white with an orange "tail".
