The Strategic Communications Department of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (StratCom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine) reports that Russia is concentrating a large number of transport and launch containers with anti-aircraft guided missiles for the S-300 air defense system near the border with Ukraine and in its occupied territories; now a squadron with missiles is going from Ulan-Ude to the border.

Quote from StratCom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: “At the beginning of August, trains with ammunition consisting of 28 wagons with missiles for the S-300 air defense system in the amount of 32 SAM (anti-aircraft guided missile – editor’s note) left Ulan-Ude. The train will arrive at the border with Ukraine around August 20.”

details: It is reported that by mid-August more than 120 containers with missiles for the S-300 air defense system were seized from the arsenal of the complex storage of missiles, ammunition and explosives in the Russian city of Kotovo.

It is also known that about 440 transport and launch containers for the S-300 air defense system were stored in the Dzhankoi area.

StratCom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine notes that after the Dzhankoi incident it is still difficult to say whether these transport and launch containers were completely destroyed, partially destroyed or not damaged at all.

It is also reported that Russia is collecting missiles for the S-300 in Zyabrovka (Belarus), 22 km from the border with Ukraine – currently the total number of transport and launch containers exceeds 60 units.

“The danger of a massive attack on the territory of Ukraine, at least by S-300 missiles, is obvious. With a number of trains arriving by August 20th, it is also evident that they are concentrating and preparing for 08/24 [which is Ukraine’s Independence Day]” concluded StratCom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
