Gabala [Lyaki]

Daryal installation No 754 -- the Gabelinskaya radar station -- was located at Lyaki in Azerbaijan. The fate of the EWS radar located near Gabala was on the agenda of negotiations between Russia and Azerbaijan held in Moscow in 1997. The Stopor installation with its' 16-story radar building is located in Gabala. The radar was intended for detection of launches from the Indian Ocean. However, the radar is unable to process the information independently, and transmits it to the Kvadrat and Shvertbot installations near Moscow. Russia will probably have to pay rent for the land where the radar is stationed.
