According to the Air Force Command of UA Armed Forces, anti-aircraft missile forces of the Air Command South of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have received an S-300 missile system from partner countries, which significantly strengthened Ukrainian air defenses in the south of the country.
The Command of the Ukrainian Air Force has reported on Telegram.
"The S-300 missile system effectively performs its work against a significant part of the objects of the Russian occupiers and can shoot down aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles at a distance of 5 to 150 kilometers. At the same time, it doesn't matter at what distance a target flies - 10 meters or 27 kilometers," the statement reads.
The system is already performing combat missions, the command said.
As Defense Express informed April 8, the Prime Minister of Slovakia Eduard Heger stated in Twitter the following:
Also, there are already videos of the S-300 systems being transferred by railway to Ukraine.
Time of footage and location are not provided.
Defense Express memo: The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy repeatedly urged international partners to provide long-range air defense systems. In March, Slovakia preliminarily agreed to supply "S-300" in exchange for American "Patriot" as a substitute.
