In the annexed Crimea, an automated control system (ACS) is being deployed, which will unify all fighters, bombers, attack aircraft, combat helicopters, drones, air defense complexes and radars.
The Russian Defense Ministry noted that all units of the Air Force and air defense in the Crimea were provided with new arms, but each component still has its own control systems.
After introducing the ACS, intelligence data will be processed in real-time, using artificial intelligence.
According to the occupation authorities, this system will allow for the continuous exchange of information: Each commander will be able to "get a picture of the actions of the enemy and recommendations for its destruction."
On the annexed peninsula, exercises with elements of a new control system have already been carried out.
The system is expected to be transferred to the peninsula until the end of the year.
Earlier, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, the Presidential Commissioner of Ukraine on Affairs of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev reported that Russia turned the occupied Crimea into a military base and deployed six nuclear warheads there.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told the UN that Russia had militarized the occupied Crimea for deploying nuclear weapons on the peninsula.
Dmytro Tymchuk, Coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, said that Russia needed the occupied Crimea as a place for the deployment of a military base.
According to him, Russia has placed around 60 chemical-weapons containers near Kerch.
