In Video: Russian Strikes Shred Ukraine S-300, Buk Air Defense Systems

File image.

The Russian military continues to hunt down the remaining air defense systems of Kiev forces using precision-guided weapons.

On February 29, Russian news sources shared a video documenting a recent strike on a Ukrainian S-300 long-range air defense system deployed near the settlement of Rusyn Yar in the Donetsk region. The footage shows what appears to be a guided missile destroying a transporter erector launcher (TEL), of the 5P85D or the 5P85S type.

Prior to the start of the Russian special military operation, Kiev forces had around 100 S-300P, S-300PT, S-300PS and S-300V1 batteries in service. In the first few months of the operation, the country received a single S-300PMU battery from Slovakia.

On the same day, another video showing an attack on a Ukrainian Buk-M1 medium-range air defenses system in the settlement of Khoten in the Sumy region surfaced online. A depot housing the system, its crew as well as a refueling truck was destroyed by a Krasnopol guided artillery shell.

Kiev forces had some 70 Buk-M1 systems before the start of the special military operation, some of these systems were already upgraded to the Buk-M1-2 standard.

The Russian military stepped up suppression of enemy air defenses operations in the last few months, damaging or destroying dozens of Ukrainian systems, including ones supplied by the West after the start of the special military operation, like the medium-range NASAMS and the long-range MIM-104 Patriot.

Ukraine’s air defense capabilities are slowly being depleted. Today, Russian missiles and drones can hit any target across the country.

ukrainians used this same weapon to down mh17 to drag nato into a war with russia and ended up using it as propaganda. to this day there is still no explanation as to why they diverted this civilian flight over a known war zone other than to have it shot down and used for propaganda. ukraine has a habit of downing civilian airliners another incident happened before with israeli civilian flight which the ukrainians denied until they could no longer deny it.

that flight was that? when did it happen?

GlowingEurophiles

it was not a israeli airliner but had israelis onboard: siberia airlines flight 1812 was a commercial flight shot down by the ukrainian air force over the black sea on 4 october 2001, en route from tel aviv, israel, to novosibirsk, russia. the aircraft, a soviet-made tupolev tu-154, carried 66 passengers and 12 crew members. most of the passengers were israelis visiting relatives in russia. there were no survivors.

the mh17 was sent to the war zone in a very suspicious way. all civilian planes were forbidden to enter the ukraine flight zone. but it was destroyed by mistake by dpr forces. in a couple of videos and social media posts you can see dpr fighters cheering the destruction of a ukrainian army plane used to bring troops on the front. at the time, downing a plane was a rare event. dpr buk operators didn’t know it was a civilian plane.
