US ready to impose sanctions against the countries-buyers of Russian systems s-400. About this, answering the journalists ‘ questions at the briefing said state Department spokesman Heather Nauert.
According to her, the problem lies in the fact that the Russian s-400 is incompatible with systems that use the NATO countries. “We showed all the countries in the world that may lead to the entry restrictions from the United States,” said Neuert.
Earlier, on 25 July, it was reported that the United States Congress officially banned the importation of F-35 to Turkey because of Ankara’s purchases of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems C-400. The house of representatives and the Senate made the amendments in the latest version of the defense budget of the United States for the year 2019.

The cost of the agreement is $ 2.5 billion, more than half of the amount will cover the Russian loan. The United States and other NATO members oppose the purchase by Ankara of the Russian SAM.
