Russia is concentrating a large number of missiles for the S-300 air defense system near the borders of Ukraine and in the occupied territories. There is a fairly obvious threat of massive shelling of the territory of our country.
This was reported to Channel 24 by military expert Oleg Zhdanov. He does not rule out that Russia is preparing to deliver a massive blow to Ukraine on Independence Day.
Why Russia is pulling S-300s to the front line
Zhdanov noted that there are two options for the possible use of these missile systems. Or the Russians want to increase the number of rockets for massive bombardment on Independence Day.
The second option, which may be the reason for the concentration of these missiles, is that they want to increase the density of air defense assets, said military expert.
He explained that the occupiers might be doing this in anticipation that we might get Western air power. After all, talk about providing us with Western models of aviation has been going on for a long time. In addition, there was information in the American media that some of our pilots were already undergoing the relevant exercises.
The military expert recalled that Ukraine, from the first day of a full-scale invasion of Russia, asked for air defense systems, aviation, artillery, tanks and other armored combat vehicles. We were given almost everything, with the exception of aviation. Therefore, it is likely that in a month and a half it may appear in the sky of Ukraine with our own pilots.

What kind of missiles can Russia use
Zhdanov believes that Moscow can launch a massive strike against Ukraine on Independence Day. However, it is unlikely that it will use Kinzhal missiles, since there are very few of them in Russia. The number of aircraft converted to this missile is also small.
A massive strike can be inflicted by the remaining sea-based Calibers. It can be delivered by conventional ballistic missiles to missiles of the Iskander complex,” he said.
The military expert noted that Russia has a very large arsenal of air-to-ground missiles. In particular, Kh-22, Kh-101, Kh-55 and Kh-555 missiles. In addition, the coastal missile system of the Bastion type and the P-800 Onyx missiles, which were fired at the Odessa and Nikolaev regions, are being delivered to the southern coast of the mainland of Ukraine.
Pay attention! Usually anti-aircraft S-300 air defense missile systems are used for air defense. However, the Russian occupiers thought of hitting ground targets with these weapons.
The use of S-300 systems by Russia: what is known
- strike anti-aircraft missile systems S-300. The American Institute for the Study of War believes that this may mean that it is running out of more powerful missiles.
- Now Russia is pulling a large number of new weapons to the borders with Ukraine and in the occupied territories. According to the StratCom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it is said, in particular, about transport and launch containers with anti-aircraft guided missiles in the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system.
- At the same time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the South destroyed 4 anti-aircraft missile systems C -300 and 3 enemy ammunition depots. In addition, 39 infidels were liquidated.
