The decision to place Pantsir air defense systems on the roofs of buildings in the center of Moscow was made due to fear of drones of the Armed Forces.
This is reported by Bloomberg with reference to its own confidential sources.
According to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the deployment of the air defense systems followed attacks attributed by the Kremlin to Ukrainian drones on military air bases in Saratov and Ryazan, about 500 km from the Russian capital.
The new systems should complement the anti-missile systems around Moscow.
Earlier in social networks, photos of PPO "Pantsir", installed on the roofs of buildings in the center of Moscow, as well as in the western suburbs, near the official residence of President Vladimir Putin, appeared.
The State Duma of the Russian Federation called these images fake.
As previously reported, on December 5, explosions rang out at two military airfields in the Russian Federation, from which the aggressor state attacks the territory of Ukraine with strategic bombers.
As a result of the incident, two planes were damaged, several Russian servicemen were injured, four of them fatally.
We will remind you that Russia is seriously discussing the defense of Moscow against Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles.
Previously, "experts" assumed that an attack on the capital of the aggressor state could take place on New Year's Eve, and suggested using balloons for aerial reconnaissance, as during the Second World War.
