Turkey Received More Than 120 Missiles For S-400s

MOSCOW: (HRNW) Russia has supplied more than 120 surface-to-air missiles to Turkey as per a delivery and acceptance act signed by Turkey and Russia in December, Russian news agency Tass reported on Monday.

Turkey made a deal with Russia for the supply of S-400 missile defence systems back in 2017, and started to accept delivery of components for the system in July 2019.

The purchase and delivery led to a crisis with the United States and NATO, as the United States maintains the Russian-made weapons system is incompatible with the F-35 stealth fighter Turkey was involved in the manufacture of and poses a security risk to NATO defences.

Turkey was removed from the F-35 program, and U.S. lawmakers have been pushing for sanctions against Turkey over the country’s increased cooperation with Russia.
