Turkey deploys Russian S-400s to defend Ankara from Greek missile attack

The Russian S-400s delivered to Turkey are now protecting Ankara from Greek strikes.

After Greece threatened to launch tactical missile strikes on Turkish territory, Ankara decided to urgently deploy long-range S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems previously purchased from Russia in the area of ​​​​the Turkish capital. The complexes were deployed at the Myurted airbase near Ankara. And, apparently, the latter appeared here a few weeks ago, after Greece announced that it had the ability to strike at the Bosphorus and, probably, other regions of Turkey, with the help of its tactical cruise missiles.

On the presented satellite image, you can see the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system deployed on the territory of the Myurted airbase. In fact, this is the first time that these air defense systems supplied to Ankara have appeared on satellite images. Apparently, Turkey is extremely concerned about the behavior of Afi. In this regard, the protection of the Turkish capital had to be entrusted to Russian systems, which are capable of providing highly effective interception of any targets, including cruise missiles, at distances up to 400 kilometers.

Earlier, Turkey announced its intention to acquire another batch of Russian S-400 Triumph air defense systems, however, for unknown reasons, no progress has been recorded in the negotiation process between Ankara and Moscow.
