The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation commented on the need for a special flight of the leader Sergei Lavrov's department to get to New York in closed airspace. The minister will come to New York for the UN General Assembly.
“Washington should refrain from provocative actions that could disrupt the participation of the head of the Russian delegation at the UN General Assembly,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said, adding that all matters related to the overflight of the Russian special aircraft should be agreed between the aviation authorities of the two countries in a prescribed manner.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian president appointed Lavrov as the head of the Russian delegation to the UN General Assembly.

Official representative Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, said that Western countries go as far as open lies when they claim that Russia allegedly poses a threat to the Zaporizhzhya NPP.

B The United States unexpectedly revealed a way to ensure the safety of air defense and radar systems against the AGM-88 HARM. As it turned out, according to Avia.pro, regularly turning off the radar can reduce the risk of the missile locking onto the target, but only if we are talking about stations with a range of more than 20 km.
As reported, the missile is self-guided to any target with electronic radiation. This applies not only to air defense systems and radar systems, but also to electronic suppression systems.
If the complexes and stations work in active mode for more than 30-40 seconds, then the missile will successfully intercept the target, but if the United states provided Ukraine with more modern versions of the AGM-88D, only 15 seconds would be enough.
It is reported that if the military successfully identifies the missile within the specified time period and shuts down all sources of electronic radiation, then the missile will simply self-destruct.< /p>
