SEVASTOPOL – Russia put another battalion of S-400 ‘Triumph’ air defense missile systems on the Crimean Peninsula on combat duty in Sevastopol on Saturday, an Interfax correspondent reported.

“Starting today, the entire Crimean air defense group has been provided with the latest S-400 air defense missile system, which has no analogues in the world,” Lieut. Gen. Viktor Sevostyanov, the commander of the 4th Air Force and Air Defense Forces Army, said.

The first S-400 battalion in Crimea was put on combat duty near Feodosia a year ago.
