Russia has encountered issues with air defense systems due to losses in Ukraine: British intelligence reports on the situation

Russia is facing challenges with air defense systems due to losses in Ukraine

In recent weeks, the Russian occupation army has suffered heavy losses of anti-aircraft missile systems. Therefore, to maintain cover for their positions in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, the Russian occupiers may have to redistribute the SAMs that usually protect remote parts of the Russian Federation.

First of all, we are talking about the S-400 air defense systems, which are capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 400 km. This was reported by UK military intelligence.

The destruction of new anti-aircraft missile systems of the Russian army has weakened the air defense of the Russian Federation. This primarily concerns the aggressor country's problematic areas at important strategic sites and along the state border.

British intelligence noted that the redistribution of air defense assets will once again demonstrate that the war against Ukraine continues to stretch Russia's armed forces too thin. Also, the growth of Russian losses limits the ability of the occupiers to maintain basic defense on their territory.

It is worth noting that the most significant loss for the Russian army's air defense is the S-400 (SA-21 in NATO classification). Equipped with long-range missiles, this system can hit aerodynamic targets at a range of up to 380 km. In addition, Russian terrorists regularly use S-300/400 systems to fire at ground targets.

As a reminder, the destruction of the Russian S-400 air defense system near the temporarily occupied Yevpatoriya on September 14 demonstrates the problems faced by the occupiers in countering Ukrainian attacks. There are systematic tactical failures in the work of air defense in Crimea.

Earlier, it was reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense on October 25 announced the alleged successful downing of two ATACMS missiles in the Luhansk region. However, later it became known that the information about the "success" was somewhat exaggerated: both missiles successfully hit the position of a Russian air defense group in the Luhansk region.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, investigators have exposed a Russian defense company that manufactures missiles used by the occupiers to shell Ukrainian cities. The Voskresensky plant, located in the forests near Moscow, is a place where Russian invaders create both S-300, S-400, and S-500 missiles and constantly modernize them.
