Russia is removing its air defense systems from Syria, which it can transfer to the war in Ukraine
Russia transferred an anti-aircraft battery of the S-300 type from Syria. The battery deployed last month protected the Russian base "Khamim" and the port of Tartus.
The Israeli media reported the relevant information, referring to satellite images of the private Israeli intelligence firm ImageSatIntl. Probably, the Kremlin is resorting to such actions because of the shortage of weapons in the war against Ukraine.
