New details are coming to light, showing the location of Russia’s recent deployment of advanced missile systems in Crimea.
According to reports Sunday, S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries were deployed in the Dzhankoi airbase, where the infrastructure has been under construction in recent months.
Satellite images show eight launchers of the S-400 battery are in four pieces along with two radar systems and multiple trucks, which are believed to be carrying missiles.
Those missiles are reportedly capable of traveling nearly 250-miles, and can intercept several types of other missiles.
This comes as tensions between Ukraine and Russia continue to rise, following the seizure of three Ukrainian vessels and a dozen sailors roughly a week ago.
