Russia has powerful radars on the border of Venezuela and Colombia

They are like giant ears that can pick up even the sound of a falling needle; and with these large-screen artifacts, which look like transforming robots that are only seen on television, Venezuela has tried to discover Colombia’s best-kept secrets beyond the kilometers of jungle and river borders that separate the two nations that are said to be sisters.

Those bionic ears are four radars that the Government of Venezuela installed in the border towns of Zulia, Táchira, Apure and Falcón. And another, the most powerful, was armed in the central square of the Fort Tiuna military complex, in Caracas, the Venezuelan capital.

The five radars are the donated tentacles of a Russia that wants to expand with the invasion of Ukraine, and that needs, on this side of America, to have allies to find out what is happening on the other side of the world and to have a gateway to the mainland.

Colombian military intelligence sources confirmed that the installation of these radars took place simultaneously 10 days ago, when a legion of Russian men arrived at the border area, stayed four days and returned to Caracas to set up the Tiuna military center. .

“We know that Russian advisers do these jobs as quickly as possible because they don’t like the mountains so much, but to be well housed in five-star hotels. They are very distrustful and carry their own food and even water; They even wear the uniform of the Venezuelan Air Force,” explained a military analyst.

The investigator said that with the installation of these artifacts, the aim is to carry out activities such as exploring communications and monitoring and identifying the movements of predetermined targets by the Venezuelan authorities.

“These radars use state-of-the-art Russian technology, which allows you to identify and capture any communication at any frequency located within the electromagnetic spectrum; in addition, it shows you the exact point from where the signal originates”, indicated the researcher.

What types of radars are they?

The information contained in field and intelligence documents allowed the Government of Colombia to establish that the radars used to spy on communications from the border are the P-18, but they also found the Chinese JYL-1 and DW-01 radars. , which – according to experts – is a device that does not emit any strong electromagnetic waves, which gives it the characteristic of acting as a spy, capturing signals from aircraft in Colombian airspace that range from telephones to WhatsApp conversations.

“Interceptions can even reach sophisticated and encrypted communication radios, communications systems of military vehicles such as tanks or warships, and even fighter and commercial aircraft,” the military analyst said.

In addition, the Colombian authorities know that another Chinese radar called JY-11B was installed in the state of Apure, with which they monitored the planes loaded with coca that landed in the Venezuelan plains.

When it comes to managing the radars, there is always a team of Venezuelan authorities, but they have the advice of the Russians, who are always at the forefront of operations.

There are also helicopters

But on the Colombian-Venezuelan border there is not only radar equipment; a fleet of Russian MI helicopters are waiting at the Barinas base, just 30 air minutes from Arauca, on the border with Colombia.

Three of these aircraft (see infographic) flew over the Colombian-Venezuelan border on the Arauca border last January, after the confrontation between the dissidents of the Farc’s 10th front against the Second Marquetalia, allied with the ELN, worsened. .

Those aircraft, say the inhabitants of the border area, have flown over Apure, when the guerrillas who take refuge in Venezuela come into direct confrontation with those who are on the Colombian side.

“These helicopters have already been used to attack the dissidents of the 10th front. They were artillery at bases in Venezuela, always with Russian advice,” says the researcher.

With the overflights of these aircraft, control of the border is also sought through deterrence strategies launched not only against illegal armed groups, but also against Colombian state forces.

The government speaks

With the complaints in hand, EL COLOMBIANO tried to find out the version of the Colombian government regarding the installation of radars on the border with Colombia, but no response was obtained.

Initially, from the office of the chancellor and vice president, Marta Lucía Ramírez, they indicated that this matter was not within their competence, that it was a matter that concerned the Ministry of Defense, despite the fact that on February 7 they met with the ambassador of Russia in Colombia, Nikolai Karlovich Tavdumadze, to express his concerns about the amount of weapons, logistics and military aid that country provides to Venezuela, and the concern that this aid would remain in the hands of irregular armed groups.

On that occasion, the vice president and chancellor expressed that in Colombia there was concern about cyber threats and pointed out that “we are here in a state of maximum alert, our Armed Forces are, but we are also in everything that has to do with the use of technology or the manipulation of social networks”.

Ramírez stated that “the Russian ambassador has told us that no military cooperation from Russia to Venezuela will ever be used for military action against Colombia.”

Given the referral from the Vice Presidency, the Ministry of Defense was also consulted, headed by Minister Diego Molano, and from its communications office they stated that “in the ministry we are not speaking on this issue.”

With concerns up their sleeves, there is another matter that draws attention: in Venezuela they are thinking, with the support of Russia and Cuba, of installing seven more radars, these Chinese-made ones that would serve as spies for surveillance and intelligence.

These new artifacts would be assembled along the border line from where Venezuela does not want to stop listening, as if standing behind a door, the secret conversations that take place in Colombian territory.
