The Defense Forces of Ukraine conducted a series of successful strikes against russian surface-to-air missile systems in temporarily occupied Crimea

The Atesh partisan movement reported on its Telegram channel that russian air defense units have received "recommendations" from commanders to evacuate families to military towns in the Southern Military District located in the russian federation.

"This scenario coincide with the relocation of air defense systems to Belgorod Oblast, which poses a security threat to Crimea, leaving it without the necessary coverage," Atesh noted.

Since the Defense Forces of Ukraine had more ATACMS ballistic missiles, russian SAM systems in temporarily occupied Crimea find it much harder to perform their missions.

For instance, on June 10, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported about damage of three of russian air defense systems. Radars and ammunition depots were damaged as well.

Taking into account thr fact that the USA allowed Ukraine to use their weapons against military targets on russian territory, it is unlikely that they will be completely protected from attacks in Belgorod Oblast.Earlier video and footage of destroyed S-400 SAM system as well as 92H6 radar on the territory of the russian federation appeared.

The Atesh also noted that russian occupation troops plan to create new mobile air defense groups with ZU-23-3 twin-barreled autocannon to destroy UAVs.

Earlier Defense Express reported that russians had used abandoned airfields in temporarily occupied Crimea.
