FLY. Anti-aircraft systems mounted on the Ministry of Defense and other batteries installed in a park near the capital: For a few days now, videos and photos have been circulating in Russia’s social media – not verifiable – that the authorities believe it is possible for the authorities to alert them to attacks from the air against Fly. The Kremlin has not commented on the rumours. When asked about it, the spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters to contact the Defense Ministry for clarification. Russian Telegram channels, including some pro-Kremlin blogs, have published photos of the Defense Ministry’s Frunzenskaya embankment allegedly showing a Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile system, online publication Agentstvo notes.

The Telegram Moscow Calling channel, cited by the Meduza website, has published several videos that would also show the installation of a Pantsir-S1 system in a building on Teterinsky Street that houses government offices.

Photos showing anti-aircraft missile systems circulated on Russian Telegram channels earlier this week S-400 in Losiny Ostrov National Park and in the experimental fields of the Timiryazev Agricultural Academy, both locations north of Moscow.

The Sirena publication claims that trees were cut down in Losiny Ostrov National Park to clear an area for anti-aircraft missile systems. The Ministry of Defense “is responsible for ensuring the security of the country in general and that of the capital in particular, you better ask them,” Peskov said when asked to comment on the rumours. But no explanations came from military leaders.

Viewers of the videos immediately thought of December’s drone strikes on two Russian air bases in Ryazan and Saratov, killing three soldiers and wounding four others. According to Moscow authorities, they were carried out by Ukrainian forces, which they neither denied nor confirmed. Therefore, if the installation of anti-aircraft defenses is confirmed, it could be a precautionary measure to repel similar attacks on the capital. But military experts point out that Moscow, with its government buildings and executive residences, starting with that of President Vladimir Putin in Novo-Ogariovo, west of the city, is already protected by very advanced defense systems and the eventual installation of others would not be so blatantly done.
