Russian Surface-To-Air Missiles: Up for grabs?

The Russian S-300 Surface-toAir Missile System is considered by many-an-analyst to be the most sophisticated anti-aircraft weapon in the world, so you have to wonder why they're sitting on unguarded Russian bases, seemingly up for grabs.

A blogger that Russian defense officials accuse of having inside info has leaked photographs of unguarded S-300 systems on several army bases that are supposedly accessible to anyone willing to go on a nature hike.

Given the fact that Russia has recently reneged on it's pledge to sell these missiles to the Islamic Republic of Iran (due to the most recent round of sanctions), you'd hope they'd be keep them better guarded.
