    Original text and some translation

    БРАВ ВМФ России перевооружат комплексы «Бастион» на новые гиперзвуковые ракеты в 2022 году
    В 2021 году береговые ракетные-артиллерийские войска (БРАВ) ВМФ России укрепили свои позиции. Министерство обороны страны решило расширить их возможности в этом году, пишут «Известия».
    Информаторы в Минобороны рассказали, что в составе БРАВ ВМФ России появятся дополнительные подразделения. На данный момент в БРАВ включены около восьми дивизионов комплекса «Бал». Планируется, что в скором времени начнется их перевооружение на новые ракеты. Первыми оснастят бригады Северного и Черноморских флотов.
    Кроме того, ведомство перевооружит береговые ракетные комплексы (БРК) «Бастион» на новые гиперзвуковые ракеты в 2022 году. Это поможет увеличить дальность действия комплексов до 1-1,5 тысячи километров.


    Coastal troops of the Russian navy will be REARMED to new hypersonic missiles.
    In 2021 coastal missile-artilery troops of Russian navy have had reinforced their positions. Russian MOD has decided to spread capabilities of missile-artilery troops. Informants in the Ministry of Defense have said that additional units will appear in the BRAV of the Russian Navy. At the moment, BRAV includes about eight divisions of the "Ball" complex. It is planned that their rearmament with new missiles will soon begin. The first will equipped the brigades of the Northern and Black Sea fleets.

    Which has interesting implications for countries near Russian borders and coastal areas...

    For instance coastal batteries near St Petersberg or Kaliningrad need to appreciate that these mach 10 1,000km range plus missiles are fully multirole and can be used against ground as well as sea targets... that is going to shift the balance... wonder how many kms from Russian territory they will be basing those F-35s they all seem to want to get...

    Coastal defense system with Cirkon is a completely new quality. Even without a fleet, these complexes can control entire bodies of water such as the Black Sea, the Baltic Sea, the Okhotsk Sea,Part of the Mediterranean Sea and the Barents Sea. Part of the Arctic, in fact. All this apart from the fleet. As Garry writes about the possibility of attacks by ground targets. I think the US will want to return to the INF soon Laughing

    Distance between Kaliningrad and Warsaw is 277 km
    Distance between Kaliningrad and Berlin is 527,32 km
    Distance between Kaliningrad and Stockholm is 535 km
    Distance between Kaliningrad and London is 1417,36 km. If the range of those missiles is up to 1500 km.
    Distance between Kaliningrad and Paris is 1403 kilometers.
    Distance between Kaliningrad and Vilnius is 306 km.

    The INF Treaty only happened because at the time there was an European anti-nuclear political protest movement and the Soviets could put weapons in Cuba.
    With the mollified European population nowadays the protests are highly unlikely to happen in the first place and the US itself couldn't care less about how many  Europeans would die in such a conflict.

    The ones who would typically do such protests, like Germany's Green Party, seem to have switched to a position where military nuclear weapons are ok, but civilian nuclear power is not.
