Russia has deployed the S-400 missile system in the annexed Crimea. In February 2018, the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems will become operational in Sevastopol, as stated by Russian Lieutenant-General Viktor Sevostyanov, as reported by TASS news agency.

“In Sevastopol, the rearmament of the S-300PM anti-aircraft missile complex began with the new S-400 air defense system. The equipment is now being sent and installed, and then test firing is planned,” Sevostyanov said.

In addition, in 2018 an S-400 division and Pantsir-S short-range air defense system will be deployed in Feodosia.

The S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system is designed to neutralize any kind of air attack within a radius of 400 kilometers. When additional modules are added, the range of the system extends to 600 kilometers.
