Russian Air Defenses' Performance in Numbers

The Russian Ministry of Defense reported earlier today that the country’s air defenses destroyed eight Ukrainian drones over Russia’s Kursk and Belgorod regions. What do we know about Russia’s air defenses that protect the Russian sky?
Air Defense Troops of the Russian Ground Forces are a robust combat unit carrying out regular defense duties, reconnaissance of enemy aircraft, elimination of enemy air attacks, and participation in theatres of military actions.
Some of the most notable defense systems include the Triumf mobile surface-to-air missile, Prometey road-mobile air and missile defense system, Tor short-range air defense system, Pantsir surface-to-air missiles, Buk and Vityaz complexes, and Igla man-portable anti-aircraft missile system.
