Russia-built S-300 and S-400 air defense systems performed live firing drill during international exercise Combat Brotherhood-2017 held in Astrakhan region, Southern Russia this week.

"The tactical episode is over. There are no targets in the sector. All targets were destroyed. All tasks have been coped with. No violations of safety requirements occurred," the commander of the allied aviation and air defense group of the CIS countries, Lieutenant-General Viktor Sevostyanov told TASS.

All participants in the firing practice - crews from Armenia, Russia, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan - displayed a high level of skills. The aircraft involved in the exercise hit all targets on the surface to earn excellent marks.

"The task was a rather complicated one. A total of 19 targets were released to simulate all types of flying objects - from drones to ballistic missiles," Sevostyanov added.
