On June 26, InformNapalm issued an important report containing a video recording the presence of a Russian artillery reconnaissance and target designation radar station 1L259 Zoopark-1 near Horlivka.

On June 23, 2019, this system was detected with the technical assets of the Azov regiment; the Ukrainian servicemen targeted and defeated the vehicle. Recently, we received new evidence indicating that the Russia has supplied and deployed these systems in the Donbas since 2014.

New evidence was found on June 27 by the investigating blogger Askai. He published links to a photo album from a trip to Donbas of a Russian athlete Maryana Naumova, who openly supports Russian militants. Naumova posted a photo with a clearly identifiable part of the Zoopark-1 system on VK social network on November 4, 2014, along with other photos from the Donbas.

New photos prove once again that Russia has been using its latest military technology in the war against Ukraine in the Donbas since 2014. Sanctions have not forced Russia to desist from its aggressive actions and withdraw its equipment from the occupied territory of Ukraine. The Russian military personnel continues to command and assist mercenaries and illegal armed groups which include both local collaborators and a significant portion of Russian citizens. The hybrid occupation troops under the Moscow leadership do not intend to withdraw equipment and lay down arms, but plan to expand the territory under their control.
