Russia puts S-400 on display in annexed Crimea

Residents of Sevastopol got a chance to see and touch S-400 missile defence system when it was put on display in the main square of the Crimean city, along with Pantsir-S1 and other military equipment.Moscow deployed one division of S-400 surface-to-air missiles near the port of Feodosia in 2017, following in 2019 by another one in Sevastopol.The S-400 systems, known as “Triumph”, can bring down airborne targets at a range of 400 kilometres and ballistic missiles at a range of 60 kilometres, according to Russia’s defence ministry.Russia annexed Crimea in 2014. It prompted the United States and the European Union to impose sanctions on Russia, plunging Western relations with the Kremlin to their worst level since the Cold War.Moscow says an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voted to become part of Russia in a 2014 referendum wanting protection from what the Kremlin cast as an illegal coup in Kiev.
