Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a Russian MP who has lead the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) since the 1990s, has let slip that Russia allegedly had “S-600” and “S-700” air defense systems.

The earth-shattering “revelation” came when the flamboyant 72-year-old legislator was commenting on the recent delivery of the S-300 missile defense systems to Syria.

“S-300 has interested them (the United States),” he said Thursday on a current affairs talk show hosted by journalist Vladimir Soloviev.

“They had [previously] paid no attention whatsoever to some S-300. But now they’re scared, because Israel, the United States’ close ally, is scared — S-300s are nearby. Every jet — not just Israeli — every military jet may be destroyed.”

“The Americans are scared in general, they are scared that the world’s best air defense system is Russia’s S-300. And we [also] have S-400, S-500, S-600, and S-700. We can shut down the whole planet, and no plane will [be able to] take off,” the MP joked.

His statement prompted an explosion of laughter from another guest on the show and applause from the audience. The host played along with Zhirinovsky, cautioning him that he shouldn’t give away all secrets so as not to bring up the “dreaded S-1500 system.”

The MP batted back the warning, claiming that the imaginary S-700 will “block everyone at the launch points for good, and this will be the last blow of the Russian counter-air defense system.”

The Russian military rolled out the S-400 Triumph defense system in 2007. The S-400 was created on the basis of the Russian S-300 air defense systems, but has significantly better performance capabilities in terms of effectiveness, coverage area, as well as variety of targets.

Initially, the S-400 was named the S-300PM3 and it was intentionally designed to look like the S-300, so that the enemy could not recognize which system it was dealing with.

Zhirinovsky is a totally high on vodka moron who several times called to start WW3, and a nuclear one. Nobody sane would let Zhirinovsky any access to classified stuff. Note that S-500 is still not even in service. BTW there are already western systems with higher performances : – RIM-161 Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) Block IA/B ranges 700km – RIM-161 Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) Block IIA ranges 2,500km – IAI/Boeing Arrow 3 ranges 2,400 km Arrow 3 is still the only SAM having intercepted another hypersonic SAM in combat, a S-200. Nevertheless, an US-Navy (or Israeli-Navy) ship in Greek waters… Read more »

I see that your ‘Bul*s**t ‘ comments system is not working very well Daeshbag.
I would have thought the French experts in such systems would have had better. But hey ho, this is NATO we are talking about, so probably not Daeshbag 🙂

France is NATO, in case you wouldn’t know…
So we’re not talking about “8th SS Cavalry Division Florian Geyer” which was totally destroyed by the Red Army in 1944 😉

Yes, yes, try harder, my “french” Hasbara friend. Patriots were very effective in Iraq too. Efficiency: 0.

Like the SyAF Su-22 that was shot in less than 10 seconds after entering Israeli airspace 2 months ago?

Can you give me the e-mail of Hasbara? As I face paid IRGC trolls here, it’ll be nicer to be paid too 🙂

Efficiency against Iranian-made ballistic missiles shot by Houthis is near 100% 😉
In case you wouldn’t know, Patriots have a bit evolved… In fact, the latest PAAC-4 is nothing else than the David Sling’s interceptor 😉

If Zhirinovsky isn’t high on vodka, he surely is in ‘крокодил’ (Krokodil) AKA desomorphine.

The guy cannot even through public jokes anymore… you d**n retard, the S-700 thing was a direct PR response to Lieberman’s rant against Syria where he claimed that the IDF would take down anything Russian if ever need be up to the S-700, and nothing more, cool your zioanger down for a second. The Arrow is still untested in actual uncontrolled situations against more than a single (antiquated)asset monitored from launch point from a whole constellation of supporting sats and ground+sea radars until interception point,they are fixed , large and energy-hungry weapon systems,non-flexible,ultra specialized and unable to intercept sub-orbital targets… Read more »

Except that neither S-300 nor S-400 still have a single combat engagement. I must have missed the Lieberman thing. I don’t know about zioanger, here we’re more into the Crusader thing since we started the movement. Uzi Rubin is not ours, here we have MBDA and our Rafale is not related to Rafael company 🙂 PAC-3 is a mid range system, same for THAAD, BTW. As long range systems, it’s all about RIM-161 IA/B and IIA in NATO and GMD for the US… For Arrow3, AFAIK, the S-200 shot down is still a hypersonic asset and AFAIK, the Jews haven’t… Read more »

“Except that neither S-300 nor S-400 still have a single combat engagement.” Then you contradict yourself, since according to your non-stop propaganda on this site it’s only a matter of time before Great Israel attacks and wins, right ? get in agreement with yourself mate, it’s becoming boring. “ I must have missed the Lieberman thing. I don’t know about zioanger, here we’re more into the Crusader thing since we started the movement.” Yes you did, like a lot of other things in school. And I love it when you admit you’re a certified religious extremist. Good on you mate.… Read more »

At least Israeli diplomats don’t try to do bombings in France, unlike the Iranian one your licy masters ordered to give 500g of TATP to two IRGC spies last June.
Guess what? Bibi informed us apout your plot! Mossad rocks!

In fact, Mossad also helped busting the HELLbollag cocaine rings in the EU, in case you wouldn’t know, so we can thank them again : they’re always pleased to help 🙂
