Mediterranean Missile Test Detected by Voronezh-DM Radar?

This news:
mentions that the missile launch (which was described as a test launch by both Israel and USA) was detected in Armavir region of Russia. This is the relevant news quote:
The launch was detected at 10:16 a.m. Moscow time (6:16 a.m. GMT) by radar in the southern Russian city of Armavir

Now, if you look at what radar installation is in Armavir, you would find this: This means that the Voronezh-DM radar is working as "advertised". It's powerful enough to detect ballistic object(s) thousands of miles away. Feel free to disagree in the comment section :-)
