Ukrainian social media started talking about Russia air defense systems may end. Allegedly, Moscow is sending all air defense systems to Ukraine from its other regions, including the Arctic. Military expert Vladislav Shurygin in his Telegram channel told why the system data could be transferred to the special operation zone.
“There was a crackdown on the fact that Russia has another crisis – a lack of air defense. They say that the “Arctic” air defense systems “Shell” have already been transferred to the front, and this, like, is an indicator of the crisis, ”he said.
The specialist asked himself what time of the year is suitable for “running in” the “Arctic” systems, and where the crews and crews of the complexes can earn combat experience.
“Agree, the crews of the Pantsirs and Thors in the Far North, where the greatest danger today comes, perhaps, only from polar bears, will not be able to acquire the necessary skills in anti-aircraft combat in real combat conditions,” the expert emphasized.
The analyst added that after returning to the locations, the work of protecting the sky will be better done due to this.
