"Units of the air forces and air defense deployed in the Crimea are 100 percent provided with the latest weapons," he said.
Dvornikov stressed that Russia has rearmed more than 20 military units.
The complex "Pantsyr-S" was designed for providing additional protection to air objects and protecting against ground threats. In turn, the S-400 is designed to defeat targets from the air, in particular, aircraft and ballistic missiles.

In addition to illegal recruitment of adult residents of the peninsula into the Russian army, the "authorities" regularly hold events with weapons for children: they are accepted into the ranks of the Yung army of Russia and presented with lectures on the work of Russian special forces.
