It is proposed to identify the strong electric field created during relativistic collisions of asymmetric nuclei via observation of pseudorapidity and transverse-momentum distributions of hadrons with the same mass but opposite charges. The detailed calculation results for the directed flow within the Parton-Hadron String Dynamics model are given for Cu-Au interactions at the NICA collision energies of 9 and 5 GeV. The separation effect is observable at 9GeV as clearly as at 200 GeV.
