Japanese press: “Russia is transferring military equipment from the Kuriles to Ukraine”

Russian weapons deployed in the Kuriles in 2020 were removed from the islands, according to the Japanese press, having studied satellite images.

Missile units equipped with S-300V4 anti-aircraft missile systems were deployed in Hitokappu Bay [Kasatka] on the island of Ito Rofu [Iturup]

- says the Japanese edition of Kyodo News.



Now they are absent because, as noted in the press, they were transferred to Ukraine. It is stated that along with the air defense systems deployed in the Kuril Islands, military equipment located on Sakhalin departed to the front line: Tanks and artillery. Together with the materiel, troops are also transferred to the conflict zone. Thus, an elite marine corps brigade based in Vladivostok takes part in the special operation.

Troops and military equipment from the Far East, including the Kuriles and Sakhalin, are being transferred to the Ukrainian theater of operations

- Yu Koizumi from the University of Tokyo told the publication, referring to satellite images.

However, the photos themselves, on the basis of which he came to this conclusion, were not provided.

At the same time, the participation of units from the Far East in the NWO is not a secret. So, during the special operation, the 165th artillery and 71st anti-aircraft missile brigades (Belogorsk, Amur region), the 35th anti-aircraft missile brigade (Ulan-Ude, Buryatia), the 64th separate motorized rifle brigade (Knyaz- Volkonskoye, Khabarovsk Territory), the 155th Separate Marine Brigade (Vladivostok, Primorsky Territory), as well as air regiments: the 266th assault (Steppe, Transbaikal Territory), the 23rd fighter and the 277th bomber (both from Komsomolsk-on Amur, Khabarovsk Territory).

      Common world practice. Remove weapons from the least dangerous directions to more dangerous ones (WWII, 1941, Moscow, Far Eastern divisions), wait until new ones are produced, it is necessary to close the western directions.

        Sooner or later, the war will end and the units will return to their place of permanent deployment. Moreover, they will have experience behind them, and it is worth a lot.

          And what's wrong with that ... they removed the S-300, deployed the S-400, and maybe the 500th

        The Japanese are even grateful to the Americans for Hiroshima-45 for the accelerated pacification. Well, everything is logical: conventional weapons will only lead to unnecessary casualties (apparently, due to Japanese gratitude, from Japan), respectively, they ask to use the atomic bomb immediately, without dragging out the conflict. Then why should we keep more troops there than we need?

      The question is not even where they shoot from, but what it gives.

      The same S-300V4s are completely useless against those Ukrainian drones that attacked Pskov.
      Even if they were discovered, then no one would shoot several dozen heavy missiles for such purposes - they are not intended for this.

      To fight the Beavers, you need anti-aircraft guns or cannon weapons from combat helicopters.
      But the main thing is to find them.
      Therefore, mobile groups in pickup trucks with searchlights, Burdock radar and anti-aircraft guns will also not interfere.

          Can you even imagine the use of missiles like air defense systems in urban areas?
          The airfield in Pskov is located on the outskirts of the city. That's it.

          And if a missile from such an air defense system hits a house, it will inadvertently demolish half the entrance, or even more.
          Or fragments of these missiles would fall on airfield parking with aircraft.
          The damage could have been much greater.

          Then, there were more than 20 drones. Can you imagine how many missiles had to be fired at them and what was the purpose of reloading this complex?
          It is good for aircraft and ballistic missiles, but nothing more.

            Yes, calm down, no one is going to use the S-300 and S-400 on Ukrainian UAVs, these are long-range air defense systems, against all types of aviation, operational-tactical and strategic missiles and large reconnaissance UAVs that only NATO has. But the F-16 from these anti-aircraft systems certainly will not be good.

        Soon the F-16s will have to be knocked down with something, long-range cruise missiles. Yesterday, for example, Ukraine boasted that it had successfully hit an object at a distance of 700 km. However, no matter how much I searched in the news or in the cart channels, I did not find where they were shooting. In the European part of Russia, a continuous radar field is needed like air, but it is not there !!

        However, it is not necessary to say so while sitting on the couch, because. we are practically dealing with NATO, and even more so:
        Military chronicle reported massive aviation activity
        North Atlantic Alliance near the borders of Russia.

        In this case, one should not assume that only an attack by drones is possible and this technique in the western direction will also be very out of place

        It is not necessary to kill mosquitoes with a sledgehammer. But for the F-16, for example, long-range air defense systems will not be superfluous at all. Until now, in our country, basically, military air defense passed the exam, it was the turn of the country's air defense! soldier

      It’s easier than from the Kuril Islands, there’s nowhere to get the S-300B, well, at all, our whole army is fighting on the outskirts? If they really took it away, it means the S-400 or 500 is being transported, so the Japanese don’t relax

      That's right.
      The supply of weapons to the ukrovermacht began with the rifle, immediately after the Istanbul visit of R. Abramovich.
      Then it went on increasing.
      A year ago, in the editorial office of the Listva publishing house, I.I. Strelkov said that things would come to missiles with a range of hundreds of kilometers.
      So far, the West is fulfilling its promises, even beyond the plan.
      Bandera will also have F16, no doubt.
      And they will apply, possibly taking off from the territory of third countries.
      Integrated, overwing tanks allow this.

      Our military is doing the right thing, pulling everything they can to the west.

      The only question is what will be regarded as a pretext for a strike on these aircraft.

      Taking off from a Polish, Lithuanian-Estonian airfield, for example, or crossing a conditional red line, on the territory of Ukroreich, or crossing the "old" state border?

      Let's hope that the vile attacks of Bendera UAVs on the Pskov region, from the territory of third countries, will help to make the right decision.

          La, how many times I wrote, is it really not clear that the launch of an ICBM without advance notice to the United States can provoke a nuclear war? And if you warn, what's the point? They will warn you too. Do you think the U.S. early warning system is about nothing at all, and they won’t detect the launch? They have 10 times more early warning satellites than ours

            That is, in your opinion, bombing our troops and territories to NATO from their airfields and their planes is not a declaration of war, but hitting their airfield in response with one non-nuclear missile - does this mean provoking something there? I personally put a large zucchini on what they would think there in that case. And it is quite logical that they would rather think about not losing everything because of a couple of airfields punished by their own impudence.
            But we can warn you, let the Poles (or anyone else) at the same time look at how they are protected by their leaky NATO air defense (as we have been told about this repeatedly for decades on TV), and scratch the back of their heads with a hoof, with the thought: “Is it worth continuing impudent?"

      It’s just that with all the pros and cons, Shoigu has the right approach to ensure that all the military who are subordinate to go through military operations, prove themselves and smell the war.

      Yu Koizumi from the University of Tokyo told the publication, citing satellite imagery

      Well, if the whole "military expert" Koizumi Yu - the full name, reported such important information, then Western intelligence can be calm.

      For reference, in Japan itself, Koizumi is not taken seriously, despite the fact that he positions himself as a specialist in Russia, allegedly married or was married to a girl from Russia (even 2 years of marriage with our girlfriend gives invaluable experience in understanding the Russian soul wink):
      "In 2005 he graduated from the Faculty of Sociology of Waseda University, Koizumi entered the university's graduate school at the Department of Political Science, in 2007 he received a master's degree in political science. In 2009, he joined the Information and Analysis Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan as an analyst In 2010, Koizumi became a visiting researcher at the E. M. Primakov Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences."

      Trust the fabrications of the original enemies of Russia - the yupps??? On Iturup (Southern Kuriles) the only (by structure) unit 18 Pulads is deployed. And Kasatka Bay is the main landing-accessible direction. In this bay, the Japanese squadron in 1941 was preparing for an attack on Pearl Harbor. From there, she went out to attack. How and with what forces to carry out the tasks of the PDO (anti-airborne defense) is not a dog's business, suffering from phantom pains after the defeat in World War II, to the leaders of Japan. There were T-55 tanks they were taken out. Replaced with T-80. There were S-300V. Left, taken out or replaced - our business! And one of the former divisional commanders now commands an association in the NVO zone. One thing is clear - the division will not be left without worthy air defense systems.
