Russia has deployed sophisticated air defence missiles in Georgia’s pro-Moscow rebel region of Abkhazia, the air force commander said Wednesday, in a move that risks stoking tensions with Tbilisi.
“We have deployed the S-300 system on the territory of Abkhazia,” air force commander-in-chief General Alexander Zelin said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies.
“Its role will be anti-aircraft defence of the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, in cooperation with the air defence systems of the army,” he said.
