      Recently there was an article about the deplorable state of the air defense of the Far East.

      That's right, a good analytical article. There, the air defense and air force units were reduced so much that only 8 long-range air defense divisions of the S-300, S-400 type remained on the entire Far East. So it is definitely necessary to strengthen so that no one is tempted to meddle there.
