Russian occupation forces have deployed a Bastion coastal defence missile system in occupied Crimean peninsula.

"The Russian Navy has deployed the complexes for combat use, and it completed preparations for simulation firing," Radio Free Europe reported this by quoting an official statement.

Russia's occupation forces conducted a set of field manoeuvres with "different drills." The Bastion division will further carry joint exercises with the crew of a frigate of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

The Russian coastal defence missile system Bastion is designed to destroy vessels of various classes and amphibious assault ships, convoys, shipborne and aircraft carrier strike groups, as well as single ships and radiocontrast shore-based targets amid intense fire and electronic countermeasures.
