One of the specialties of the Pantsir S-1 is the ability to automatically locate a target and intercept it, be it with missiles or with heavy-caliber machine guns, which can also be used manually.
According to Al-Mayadeen's Moscow correspondent, the decision taken to install the defense systems on the roofs took place following acts of vandalism and attacks gradually nearing the Russian capital.
This comes on the same day it was reported that CIA Director William Burns met in secret with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kiev last week to provide him with US intel regarding Russia's upcoming plans for the war in Ukraine.
Zelensky's only concern seemed to be how long the US will be gifting military packages, especially following the decision of the upcoming Republican majority in the House, who have voiced their opposition to the continuous military shipments to Ukraine.
