Russia To Start Implementing S-400 Deal With Turkey In Early 2020

Russia will start implementing a contract on delivery of S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey in early 2020, the country’s presidential aide for military cooperation told the state-run TV channel Rossiya 24.

“Turkey expressed a wish to accelerate its implementation and we managed to find the most appropriate solution as we agreed to accelerate the contract’s implementation, so I think we will begin to fulfill it sometime in early 2020,” Vladimir Kozhin told the media.

Commenting on the US pressure on Turkey to force it to abandon an idea to buy the Russian missile systems, Kozhin said that “the contract has been signed and will be implemented.”

“As far as Turkey is concerned, we value the Turkish authorities’ position, as they have said many times that protecting national interests is their top priority,” he said.

The official added that the operation in Syria allowed to test “almost all the newly designed weapons and military equipment, including the Sukhoi Su-35 aircraft, short-range air defense systems and anti-tank complexes.”

In an exclusive interview with the Zeit newspaper, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, the decision to by S-400 systems had been prompted by the reluctance of its NATO allies, primarily the US, to sell advanced weaponry to Turkey.

“We needed it urgently because we did not have an air defense system. We even had troubles with buying simple rifles from the US due to concerns of the Congress. We had to buy it from someone,” the minister said.

The S-400 Triumf is the most advanced Russian air defense system. It’s designed to engage aerodynamic targets at a range of up to 400km and ballistic missiles up to 60km away. It can use four interceptor missile types suited to different targets.

    Turkey would be better off leaving NATO and aligning with Russia, Iran and China. The Anglo-American Empire is in terminal decline and Turkey is a shoe-in for the Silk Road.

      Also, give up on Syria and go for Georgia, Azerbaidjan and maybe Kenya.

      Isn’t the most likely of outcomes, tho.

    Does anyone think that the Turks will manage to go 18 months without
    pissing off the Russians?

    ““We needed it urgently because we did not have an air defense system. We
    even had troubles with buying simple rifles from the US due to concerns
    of the Congress. We had to buy it from someone,” the minister said.”

    Of course, USA is just using Turkey to advance her agenda. Turkey is a next US target in the region.

    Like I said before, NATO weaken his members and make them chicken.
    Look how israel is not part of NATO and receive brand new weapons for free while NATO members are chickens.

  • Serious

    Russia must implement the same deal with Syria, Iran and Lebanon. Then, make an alliance on counter-terrorism.

    After seeing that USA has betrayed him, Erdogan changed his mind and start shifting his policies. That’s why his was targeted by the west and Netherland even forbid him to make political campaign for Turks in Netherlands.

  • Serious

    The love of Putin for israel will destroy Russia just like it has destroyed USA.

    We know Washington regime invaded Japan with nukes, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Yugoslavia, etc and now want to invade more countries. The Washington regime has any other business are just invading other countries is their only business. Washington regimes are evils and are against humans and need to be completely eliminated from this world.

  • Rob

    Safety first: Erdogan does not want any new state of US, NATO proxies close to Turkey with in 1000 km. If US and NATO create their proxy state near Turkey then Turkey will dismantle it, as Turkey is doing now in Syria and Iraq. If US wanna create these new states on their own land then Turkey have no problem but not in Middle East.

    Safety first: If Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt want to honour and liberate Palestine then first of all they need to kick out all Israeli nationals including Israeli spies, diplomats from their own countries. Israel is a terrorist state of illegal European migrants. Therefore, they should choose one country either Palestine or Israel.

  • Rob

    The regime in Washington is a part of all problems in the world. They killing civilians by their own proxies and when the nation of a country resist then Washington label them terrorists, sanction them, accuse them for CW or WMD etc to directly invade these countries and occupy their lands. For example Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and so on.

    Indeed Washington is it self a headquarter of all terrorist groups from where regime arms and finance different terrorist groups in the world. For example Israel, ISIS Daesh, Al-Qaeda HTS, FSA, SDF, YPG, Kurds and so on. Russia could use nuclear bombs against these terrorist groups otherwise these terrorist groups will destroy whole lives in these countries.

      When did us invaded India and Egypt

      • Rob

        I think there are no terrorists in India and Egypt.

    AFTER the Turks shoot down a Russian jet and shoot and kill its pilot while he’s dangling in the air from his parachute?

    After the Turks destroy the Russian helicopter that came to the rescue of the downed Russian pilots?

    After Turkish President Erdogan himself wowed to shoot down and kill Russians again?

    After the Turks shot down another SU-25 and killed its pilot only a couple of weeks ago?

    Putin is going to turn over Russian technology to NATO via Turkey thereby compromising Russian national security?

    Putin the zionist crypto-Jew is the problem and not the answer.

    To put it in the mildest of terms, Putin is not a good man nor a great strategist who has Russia’s best interests at the top of his agenda. Check out the links below to get a fairly-rounded perspective on Putin’s real (weak) character and motivations:

    Here’s a partial list of things why Putin is part of the problem and not, of the solution:

    1. Putin never stopped selling Russian oil for American dollars
    2. Putin never nationalized the City of London owned-and-controlled Russian central bank
    3. Putin never stopped BACKING thereby subsidizing the petrodollar with Russian oil
    4. Putin enabled NATO to kill Gaddafi
    5. Putin sells Russian gas and oil for Euros (which are just a different name for the dollar) to the European Union who commit acts of war by passing sanctions against Russia along with the Americans
    6. Putin never demanded the Americans leave Syria
    7. Putin never declared Syria’s airspace closed to America
    8. Putin never helped the Russians in Eastern Ukraine establish secure borders and independence from the NATO-imposed criminal regime in Kiev
    9. Putin sold highest-level-military-technology S-400s to NATO via Turkey thereby directly impairing Russian national security
    10. Putin sold S-400s to Saudi Arabia who are wahhabi muslim terrorists bent on the extermination of Putin’s allies the Alawite/Christian Syrians and Shiite Persians
    11. Putin collaborates with the Turks who are proud to have ambushed and shot down Russian jets and killed Russian pilots
    12. Putin opened Syrian airspace to the Turks so that they could bomb and exterminate the Kurds of Afrin in Northern Syria
    13. Putin ALWAYS allowed the Americans and the Jews to bomb and kill Syrians with impunity
    14. Putin never punished the jewish terrorists who exploded Russian passenger jets killing hundreds of Russians
    15. Putin agreed to pass sanctions against North Korea thereby agreeing to starve the North Korean population
    16. Putin refused to deliver the self-defense-related S-300s to his supposed ally Iran
    17. Putin has not provided up-to-date SAMs to his Syrian allies

    Putin the crypto-zionist Jew?

    Not good.

    Trump=Netanyahu=Putin

      Go home troll, you are drunk or stupid

      • Art Best

        Jewish troll.

    • Starlight

      Putin has always given public speeches declaring his, and Russia’s everlasting and permanent support for jews and zionism. His offical jewish psy-op propaganda personel can be found in all the pro-Russian outlets denigrating and dismissing those who point out the most disturbing facts about Putin in Syria and Ukraine.

      But Putin’s biggest sin, for he honestly believes that jews are the “master race” (and therefore thinks doing what they want is a “good” thing) is grooming the Deep State to become ever more vicious, arrogant, and war-like.

      There can be no possible excuse for Putin refusing to provide the s-400 to Assad or Iran, or pushing this system in Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia- but watch the vile trolls here abuse anyone who questions this FACT.

      Remember it was Putin who allowed the USA to get away with the 9/11 false-flag by publicly supporting the official LIE. But then Putin, earlier, had done the same thing with the Moscow Apartment Block bombings (which stopped dead when Team Putin was caught red-handed placing explosives in the basement of what would have been the latest victim building).

      We could forgive Putin’s somewhat ‘hard’ history if his purpose of rising to absolute power in Russia was to properly confront the evil of the Deep State. But today, as Britain’s May moves to end all civilised Western relationships with Russia, Putin is proved to be so out of his depth, he is literally drowning, and taking Russia with him.

      Putin was a strongman in his early days, but now he is weak, feeble and servile (as his constant votes at the UNSC prove, even as the West clobbers him with growing sanctions). The Deep State has successfully taken the measure of Putin, and crafted an array of strategies to neutralise his ‘good’ points.

      So all that is left is Putin’s propagandists selling lies and distractions on sites like this one, and the “football hooligan” type supporters on our side ripping in to anyone who points out the truth.

      The Empire of the West is a monster without mercy. It would take a truly extraordinary man to stand up to it. In truth, at times Putin came close. But in the end (assisted by the maliciousness of his jewish inner circle) it seems like he has fallen short.

      • Art Best

        Hear, hear.

        I only disagree with you about Putin’s potential for being a decent person. I thought Putin was a disgusting rat right from the beginning.

        And I have no illusions about the Russians. They sold their women to the Turks for Turkish Liras. What kind of a depraved creature could come out of that Russian womb that is so ready and willing to sell itself to the mass murderers of the first Christian nation of the world, the Armenians.

        I have nothing but contempt for the idiotic and perfidious Russians.

        Let the Jews and the Turks have their way with them. That’s what the depraved Russians want anyway.

        Rotten meat.

  • velociraptor

    Ahm. Slow russian industry.

    • Nosferatu

      What? You can produce S400 faster? Maybe you should send your offer to Turkey?

      • velociraptor

        so, yanks, germans, french, sweden sure! i write again and again, that the main problem of russia is the industry. and the research in civil sphere.

        • Nosferatu

          Yanks, germans, french, swedes can not produce anything close to S400 in performance at all, you fool……..

          • velociraptor

            also betters system. the marican is the best. the can directly hit the target. this is 2 classes aboe best russian system, which needs expolsive materials. they are not able to hit, onli coome close and then try to destroy by detonation.

            and able to produce within months

          • Nosferatu

            no other expert on this planet actually confirms what you just wrote. US patriot system was unable to shot down even SCUD rocket launched from Yemen to Saudi Arabia the other day. And SCUD is 60s technology

          • velociraptor

            hahaha. go to the hell, liar!
            masturbate dailybefore poster of s-400!

            once you run out of facts, you can start to be rude. Ohh wait you already did…..

  • Starlight

    Turkey’s reward for shooting down the Russian jet- think about it.

    Putin has stated he will never sell the s-400 system to either Assad or Iran- think about it.

    • Shakeel Haider

      Money says

    • KennyB

      In the case of Syria and Lebanon, they probably don’t have the money to buy S-400s and perhaps lack the skills to operate them. In any case, better to have Russians operating them as they are less likely to act in haste and start WWIII.

      However they are deployed, I’d still like to see Syria and Lebanon protected by an advanced surface-to-air missile system as that would scuttle Israel’s plans to attack Lebanon. At present, the IAF has the upper hand, and S-400s and MANPADs could change that. It’s about time that the Israelis (and their US lapdogs) learned to respect the sovereignty of their neighbours.

  • World_Eye

    Don’t sell nothing to those Ottoman bastards tomorrow they will turn them against you!

    • Shakeel Haider

      No. they will turn it to iran and hizbollah shia.
