Anti-aircraft defense units  are guarding the airspace over important sites, the Ministry of Defense reports.

Anti-aircraft defense units  are guarding the airspace over important sites, the Ministry of Defense reports.


In certain areas, soldiers of anti-aircraft missile troops carry out protection of important sites that may become targets of airstrikes, such as troops deployment areas and military installations. This is being reported by InfoResist with a reference to the Ministry of Defense’s Press Service.

According to the Deputy Commander of one of the divisions, the “sky guards” conduct daily trainings and improve their skills.

“Only experienced officers and contract soldiers, having practical experience of launching combat missiles are among the anti aircraft teams,” the officer stated.

The anti-aircraft teams have set up a field camp and arranged the conveniences fairly close to fire position. A patrol duty, security, and defense have been organized in the camp. A firing unit position is being protected as well and, in order to repell saboteurs and reconnaissance groups, trainings with ground defense forces are constantly conducted.

It should be noted that a number of urgent matters concerning the unit’s life support have been resolved owing to the efforts of representatives of the local authorities, business and concerned citizens. In particular, the drinking water supply has been organized and new high capacity rechargeable batteries, sleeping bags, spare parts and other material supplies have been purchased.
