It is called to cover cities and important infrastructure of the country from an air attack by the enemy from the South, in particular from the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea.
It should be noted that this anti-aircraft missile division recently returned from the area of the Joint Forces operation to the home place.
It is armed with anti-aircraft missile systems S-300 PS with capability of striking air targets at altitudes from 25 meters to 27 kilometers and at distance of more than 75 kilometers.
Now the division has fully renewed its combat capability and took the combat duty in the air defense system of the country.
“If the enemy invades the airspace of Ukraine, our rockets will cause him significant losses and force him to abandon aggressive plans. We are able to protect our citizens”, said Colonel Andriy Kopych, commander of the Brigade.
