In just a few days, the Defense Forces of Ukraine successfully eliminated various enemy targets in the Zaporizhzhia region. Among the destroyed equipment was the Russian R-330Zh Zhitel radio-electronic jamming complex, as well as enemy artillery, personnel, and vehicles.

The Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine released video footage of these operations, showcasing their precision and effectiveness in hitting enemy artillery installations, MLRS, personnel, specialized equipment, vehicles, and the enemy's electronic warfare complex.

This success was made possible through effective intelligence gathering by the Special Operations Forces. Defense Forces units provided artillery support, using the information provided by the soldiers to accurately target and strike these enemy positions.

One of Ukraine's Special Operations Forces units played a crucial role in these operations by guiding Ukrainian artillery to target and accurately adjust their fire to hit enemy positions. The Defense Forces used advanced munitions, including HIMARS MLRS received as military aid from the United States.

The list of destroyed assets includes Akatsiya self-propelled artillery, Uragan anti-aircraft missile defense systems, Pion 203-mm self-propelled guns, refueling stations, trucks, the Zhitel air defense missile complex, and enemy personnel concentrations.

The Russian electronic warfare complex R-330Zh Zhitel is designed to detect, locate, and disrupt radio signals in various communication systems. It can jam satellite communication terminals, GPS navigation systems, and cellular communication equipment.

The complex consists of radiating equipment housed in a mobile trailer container, which can be towed by a truck with a canopy.

Previously, the Ukrainian military successfully destroyed Russian EW complexes like Zhitel, particularly in the Kharkiv region, using artillery fire.
