NATO has expressed concern in connection with the supply to Turkey of Russian anti-aircraft missile complexes (AAMS) s-400. About this reports Deutsche Welle.

“We are concerned about the possible consequences of the decision of Turkey on the purchase of s-400” — said the representative of the Alliance. According to him, the work of weapons within the unit is key for joint operations and missions. In this regard, Ankara, with partners, should develop a common air defense system, he added.

Earlier on July 12, the Turkish defense Ministry has published photos of a shipment of components of s-400.

Before the President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara “without hesitation” use the s-400, if she has to defend.

On June 28, the US Senate banned the selling of Turkey’s fifth generation fighter F-35. In the United States and other NATO countries fear that if Ankara will appear on the arms and C-400 and F-35, the Russian radar systems will learn to calculate and track the American fighters.

A contract to supply Ankara with the four battalions of s-400 was achieved in September 2017. The contract is worth $ 2.5 billion, half of this amount will cover the Russian loan. Also buyers of the s-400 “Triumph” are China and India.
