The Russian naval group in Syria is protected by the Bastion coastal defense
system, S-300, S-400 and Pantsir systems, Russian Defense Minister Sergei
Shoigu said Tuesday.

“As you know, S-400 system had been deployed [in Syria] a long time ago. In
addition, we have deployed the S-300 system to cover the sea, practically
reaching the territory of Cyprus,” Shoigu said at Russian President Vladimir
Putin’s meeting with the ministry’s leadership and defense enterprises.

Moreover, Bastion coastal systems which virtually cover the entire coast are
deployed, he said.

“These complexes are able to destroy both sea and ground targets at a
distance of 350 kilometers of the sea and almost 450 kilometers of land,”
Shoigu said.

He also confirmed that the Russian naval group in Syria is defended by the
Bastion, moreover the Russian bases in Syria are now secure from low-flying
targets.

“Pantsir systems are supplied there because of that. In addition, over the
past four months the Syrian S-200 systems have been restored, which cover
the Syrian territory from the east among other things and support the
protection of our bases in Tartus and Hmeymim from the air.”

The Russian president ordered to protect the Russian Armed Forces in Syria
from the air and sea.

In October, the Russian Defense Ministry said that a S-300 system was sent
to Syria to ensure the safety of the Russian naval base in Tartus.

According to media reports, the system deployed in Syria is S-300V4 — NATO
designation SA-23 Gladiator — that is capable of striking tactical and
strategic aircraft, medium-range ballistic missiles, tactical missiles as
well as cruise missiles.
