Konashenkov said that this news provoked a stir in the West is puzzling. According to him, the C-300 is a defensive system, so anyone not a threat. In addition, the region was already a similar system “Fort”, located on the cruiser “Moscow”.

Placing SAM in Syria became interested in the Pentagon. It noted that I do not understand why such a system is necessary in a region where terrorists have no aircraft.
