 Russia Begins Supplying S-400 Air Defence Systems To India: Govt

DUBAI: Russia has started delivering the S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems to India; the deliveries are going as planned, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Dmitry Shugaev told Sputnik ahead of the Dubai Airshow.

“The supplies of the S-400 air defense system to India have started and are proceeding on schedule,” Shugaev said.

The S-400 has already entered service in China and Turkey. Russia and India signed a contract on the delivery of S-400s in October 2018.

In August, the head of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, Alexander Mikheev, told Sputnik that negotiations on the supply of S-400 air defence systems were underway with seven countries in the Middle East, the Asia-Pacific region and Africa.
