What is known about the S-400

Note that the S-400 air defense system is a modification of the S-300. The purpose of such anti-aircraft missile systems is the destruction of aircraft, as well as the interception of cruise and ballistic missiles. However, the Russians are insidiously firing these air defense systems at civilian ground targets in the close rear of the contact line.

For Ukrainian air defense, intercepting the S-300 missile, which the Russians are converting into a surface-to-surface class, is very difficult.

The occupiers can even reach Kyiv from S-400 systems if they shoot from Belarus. Actually, this happened on January 14, 2023. Then the invaders attacked Kyiv for the first time with S-400 missiles, which destroy Zaporizhzhia, Kherson and Donbas cities.

Earlier, the Armed Forces of Ukraine told whether they will use the Patriot against the Russian S-300.
