Shoigu: We have deployed the Bastion missile system in the Kuriles

The Ministry of Defense said that in order to establish a continuous zone of control along the Kuril Islands ridge, from December 2022 on Paramushir Island, the division of the Bastion coastal missile system began a combat mission. The prime minister explained that the capabilities of the eastern military region have thus increased.

“Last year, the Eastern Military District received about 400 units of new and modernized equipment, including a nuclear submarine cruiser, Su-57 aircraft, Tor-M2DT anti-aircraft missile systems, and the Bal coastal missile system,” Shoigu added.

At the same time, according to the ministry, the military and political situation in the Far East remains difficult.

Sergey Shoigu emphasized that in 2023, the Air Defense Forces will focus on “improving the mobilization system, building military infrastructure and equipping soldiers with modern weapons.”
