TVER, June 20. /TASS/. Russian new air defence radar stations are being put up on islands in the Arctic Ocean, with fighter aviation on the way, Deputy Commander of the Aerospace Defence Forces Maj Gen Kirill Makarov told TASS on Saturday.
"We speak a lot that Russia is increasing its might in the Arctic. The armed forces do not stand aside," Makarov said. "Modern weapons are stationed on islands in the Arctic Ocean, like the Pantsyr short-range air defence system. New radar stations are being put up and fighter aircraft will arrive soon."
"All this is done so that Russia can protect its interests along the country’s perimeter as well as in the Arctic," he said.
