Due to heavy losses of S-400, Russia is forced to redeploy air defense systems from the borders to the front
Following reports of the loss of several Russian S-400 missile systems, Russia may have to redeploy air defense equipment from remote areas to the front.
This was reported by the UK Ministry of Defense.
It noted that Russia's main long-range air defense systems, such as the S-400, are capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 400 km. They are located in strategically important places, as well as along Russia's borders. This is likely to weaken Russia's air defense position on its periphery.
"The reallocation of strategic air defense assets would further demonstrate how the Ukraine conflict continues to overextend Russia’s military and strains its ability to retain baseline defenses across its vast area," the intelligence service said.
