MOSCOW, July 1. /TASS/. Medium-range anti-aircraft defence system S-350 Vityaz will enter duty in the near future, the commander of the Air Force’s anti-aircraft defence, Major-General Sergey Babakov, told the media on Wednesday.
"In the near future air defence units will begin to be armed with the new generation S-350 systems," Babakov said.
