The threats flew at altitudes ranging from 100 meters to several kilometers. Interceptors were fired from the Buk M-2, Tor, Pantsir-S, S-300, and S-400 systems. The Ministry of Defense reported that all targets were destroyed. The mission took place as part of Russia’s annual Vostok exercise, which this year includes over 300,000 Russian personnel alongside 3,200 Chinese personnel.
