Why air defense systems are being installed in the capital of the Russian Federation |
The representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine did not object to the strikes from the territory of Ukraine in the zone of the Russian Federation, from where the enemy attacks Ukrainian cities.
This was discussed during the national telethon.
Deputy head of the Main Intelligence Directorate Vadim Skibitsky confirmed that the Kremlin is in the zone of destruction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. That is why they began to install air defense systems in Moscow.
“But this is after Engels. And this suggests that if we reach Engels, then we will reach the Kremlin,” he replied to the host’s comment about the location of air defense systems by the Russians not only at the Engels airport, but also the Kremlin.
Skibitsky also commented on the explosions in the temporarily occupied Crimea. He noted that military intelligence is also working in the occupied territories.
And since there is a “powerful regrouping of Russian troops”, mobilization reserves of Russia are moving in all directions of the front both from the Rostov region of the Russian Federation and from the occupied Crimea, then strikes can also be made against the barracks and training grounds of Russians.
“It's early or later, from these barracks, they will go to the front line and attack our villages, our cities,” Skibitsky added.
The representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine did not rule out strikes on Russian territory.
“It all depends on how critical the targets are, regardless of whether this territory is occupied, whether it is the territory of the Russian Federation. Why? Well, let's look at the statistics. Where are the launches of the same cruise missiles carried out? “If we are talking about Iskanders, then these are either temporarily occupied territories, or closer to our border. Well, and the last thing: S-400, S-300 is also the Russian Federation, which is already shelling in Kyiv” “, – said the Deputy Chairman of the Main Intelligence Directorate.
At the end of 2022, there was an explosion at a military airfield in the city of Engels in Russia. This “pop” happened for the second time exactly where cruise missiles are launched in Ukraine.
Already in January 2023, the Russians placed Pantsir-S1 air defense systems on the roofs of central buildings in Moscow. As it turned out, they are aimed at protecting Vladimir Putin personally and his entourage from a theoretical Ukrainian strike. p>
