Moscow has been forced to relocate their already “overstretched” air defence systems from Kaliningrad after suffering colossal losses.

The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) said in their latest intelligence report on Sunday the move was made to “backfill recent losses.”

The MoD said on Sunday, “Exceptional Russian air transport movements through November 2023 suggest that Russia has likely moved strategic air defence systems from its Baltic coast enclave of Kaliningrad, to backfill recent losses on the Ukraine front.”

The intelligence report also said that there has been an “uptick in losses of SA-21 air defence systems” in the Russian occupied areas in Ukraine since late October 2023.

The report added, “As its most westerly outpost and bordered on three sides by NATO member states, Russia sees Kaliningrad as on of its most strategically sensitive regions.

“The fact that the Russian MoD appears willing to accept additional risk here highlights the overstretch the war has caused for some of Russia’s key, modern capabilities.”
