Combat crews of the S-400 Triumf air defence systems of the Southern Military District’s Air Force and Air Defence Troops carried out an air defence tactical and special exercise. The role of the enemy was played by Su-24M frontline bombers.

“In the course of the exercise, the Triumphs’ calculations carried out the shutdown of launch and radar units, marched to a new positioning area, deployed launchers, as well as carried out coordinate locking and orientation of the complexes on the ground with further activation and start of data collection on the air situation”, –  the statement said.

The Russian Defence Ministry said that these exercises were planned. But at the same time, they are taking place against the backdrop of general tension in the Black Sea and Ukrainian directions.

We shall remind you that earlier the US destroyer entered the Black Sea waters on November 25 to ensure “security and stability” in the waterway together with NATO allies and partners in the region. Today it has become known that the ship is leaving the Black Sea for the Mediterranean.
