MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. A new regimental set of air defense missile systems S-400 will enter operational near Moscow soon.
"At the Kapustin Yar proving ground in the Astrakhan Region specialists of Russia’s Aerospace Force have started accepting a new regimental set of the air defense missile system S-400 Triumf. After live firing practice the new regimental set of S-400 systems will be delivered by train to an air defense missile regiment near Moscow," the report runs.
