Air-defense (Russia)

In the early days of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, there was much talk about Kyiv's air-defense systems, as well as calls for NATO to close the skies over Ukraine through its air force capabilities. Memes referring to Moscow's air-defense systems reverse this earlier discourse in light of Ukraine's drone attacks against the Moscow Kremlin, which took place on May 3, 2023. Memes will invoke the language of "NATO, close the skies over Moscow," for example, and images will show sites in historical areas of Moscow with anti-air defenses as well as other “creative” ways to ensure protection from Ukrainian drones.
