Russia Beefs Up Military in Southwest Amid NATO Build-Up

  • Published on Jul 27, 2016
    Moscow says it has strengthened its southwestern flank as NATO builds up its military presence near Russian borders. Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu says Russia has deployed more air defence systems in the southwest. They include two missile brigades armed with Iskander missiles, which have boosted fire power to destroy QUOTE the potential adversary. The Russian minister also noted that terrorist groups are active in the North Caucasus, and the situation in Ukraine remains unstable. Moscow also deployed a self-sufficient contingent of troops in Crimea, which joined it in a 2014 referendum.
