Well in english it would have been better to write PW, Photonic Warfare or Radio-Optical Warfare which will include obviously also measure designed to contrast various DE weapons.

Also here, in english language, maybe should had been better to translate the acronym with "ROPAA".
Anyway if you are interested in an idea on the subject ,i point out to you this good interview with General Director at КРЭТ, В.Г.Михеевым.
A more simple article in english on the leading state of domestic research in that field can be found at the same site of КРЭТ.

1РЛ257 «Красуха-4» has been fully developed and is in full scale production since several years by now (only last year 15 system was delivered to armed forces).
Do you mean the new system, developed on the basis of the know-how achieved with "Красуха" project, conceived for strategic scale coverage from air space attack planned to be completed within one / one and half years ?
If you mean that, then maybe i was not clear enough : the transition in the "EW" domain will remain obviously "evolutional" until the introduction, at wide scale production level, of photonic systems which will represent a true critical point of break.
Being the "front runner" ,for so say, in this segment offer to КРЭТ a very distinctive technological advantage over foreign competitors and even more give to it a privileged posistion in mid-to-long term scientific R&D planning and in conceiving ,in advance, the required changes in military force structure and system design necessary to comply with the new technological reality.
