(Worthy News) - Moscow will soon deploy more of its advanced S-400 air defense systems in Russian-annexed Crimea, a military official said Wednesday, amid rising tensions with Ukraine.
The RIA Novosti news agency reported it would be in place by the end of the year, joining three other S-400 systems already on the peninsula, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014.
“In the near future, a new anti-aircraft system will take up combat duty to protect the airspace of the Russian Federation,” Colonel Vadim Astafiyev of Russia’s southern military district told news agency Interfax. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
