Russia has deployed its most advanced surface-to-air missiles to Crimea as tensions rise in the region.

The S-400 ‘Triumph’ air defence system has been sent to the peninsula, following a pledge to deploy it to the region last month.

The announcement came on Friday amid escalating tensions between Ukraine and Russia over the contested peninsula.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that two Russians were killed while thwarting what it described as a series of attempted terror attacks by Ukrainian ‘saboteurs’ in Crimea.

President Vladimir Putin condemned what he described as a ‘stupid criminal action’ by the Ukrainian authorities and vowed to take additional steps to ensure security of Crimea.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko rejected the Russian claims as ‘fantasy’ and ‘provocation’.
