Russia began construction of a new Voronezh-DM early-warning radar near Barnaul. The radar is expected to be ready for service in 2016, although it could begin limited operations earlier.

The radar in Barnaul will be the fourth Voronezh-DM radar in the existing early-warning network. Two are deployed in Armavir and one in Kaliningrad. The report suggested that the radar site will be located near village of Konyukhi - as reader SL suggested, this might be the former Shadrino airfield south of Konyukhi.

The report suggests that new early-warning radars will be built in Omsk and Orenburg regions.
