On Saturday (01.21.2023), Russia announced it had carried out air defense exercises in the Moscow capital region, to protect its critical infrastructure in the context of its invasion of Ukraine.

More than 150 soldiers took part in the training, using “more than 30 examples of weapons, military and special equipment”, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
