Ukraine, Russia locks out radio signals to protect bombing

Russia locks out radio signals to protect bombing. The 8131kHz frequency, the main one used by the Moscow aviation in the Caucasus region, has been blocked for an indefinite period

Russia has locked out the 8131kHz frequency, the main one used by the Moscow aviation in the Caucasus region, for an indefinite period. The measure has not been officially motivated, but it is assumed that it is an attempt to prevent the “enemies” from being able to identify in advance the missile attacks against Ukraine and therefore take the necessary countermeasures. The frequencies, in fact, were used by Russian strategic bombers for audio communications since the beginning of the invasion of the European country and it seems that, at least partially, they still continue to be exploited. Moreover, the risks for Moscow are not only linked to the interception of the signal in order to prevent attacks, but also to possible hacking operations to create problems for the pilots and frustrate the bombings.
