BEIJING, (BM) – Russia, as one of the leading military powers, provides reliable control over the security of its borders, including air borders. If the enemy approaches a distance of 150 kilometers, then Moscow is ready to respond to this step with a powerful missile strike.

About what means of air defense Russia possesses in contrast to its main opponent – the United States – argue the analysts of the Chinese publication Sohu.

Since the United States and Russia are super-powerful powers, an unspoken debate about leadership is ongoing between them, Chinese experts emphasize.

“The United States has always seen its enemy in Russia, because the military power of this country, its strong international position has always irritated Washington as a splinter in the eye,” Sohu said.

It is no coincidence that the United States occasionally organizes military provocations, so Russia takes adequate measures to protect itself from possible enemy actions. Recently, the Russian military conducted large-scale air defense exercises, recalls the Chinese publication.

The maneuvers of the air defense forces involved more than 100 aircraft and helicopters, as well as ships of the Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla. During the exercises, the first defense against attack using hypersonic weapons was worked out.

“The Russian air defense system is capable of delivering ultra-long attacks on aircraft and missiles of the enemy,” Sohu analysts emphasize.

Russia’s maneuvers simulated the conditions of real military operations, allowing them to work out operational actions to protect strategic objects from enemy attacks from the air.

According to Chinese analysts, Russia is building a unique aerospace defense system, which is a new type of attack warning and control system. This system, experts emphasize Sohu, does not copy the experience of the US military, but uses its own technical achievements and developments – including those that have no analogues in the world.

“Undoubtedly, the Russian air defense system, responding to modern challenges, is developing and improving,” the authors of the Chinese publication note.

According to Sohu analysts, it cannot be otherwise, because the United States will not give up its leadership ambitions and will continue to try to build up its influence and pressure policy – including on its main alleged enemy – Russia.
