USA want to buy Turkey Russian anti-aircraft missile systems s-400, in order thoroughly to study them, explained to radio station “Moscow speaking”, the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir Jabbarov.
According to him, the Americans have no weapons, similar to Russian, and reviewing “to the screws” s-400, they will try to create something of their own. According to dzhabarov, Turkey will not agree to sell the complexes to preserve the status of a reliable partner of Russia. Otherwise it no longer will enter into similar agreements, said the Senator.
“I can’t understand how to improve the relationship between the US and Turkey, if the United States will take some kind of complex C-400 myself. In my opinion, solely in order to satisfy their curiosity, or rather to say, just to steal our military secrets,” said the politician, stressing that probably at the conclusion of the Treaty between Russia and Turkey was spelled out the impossibility of resale of weapons.
Previously, the publication Defense News reported that the U.S. wants to buy from Turkey the Russian s-400, which will allow Ankara to take part in the program of the American F-35. According to them, an appropriate amendment to the draft law on budget allocations for national defence in 2021 fiscal year was proposed by Senator John Thune.
Agreement to supply Turkey’s four battalions of s-400 “Triumph” in Russia concluded in September 2017. The contract is worth $ 2.5 billion, half will cover the Russian loan. Deliveries to Turkey started in July 2019. For fear of leakage of s-400 “Triumph” of the data, revealing the possibility of American fighters fifth generation F-35 Lightning II, Washington has suspended the supply Ankara this technique. Only Turkey was to receive more than 100 aircraft.
