Turkey could take delivery of the Russian-made S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft missile system as early as 2020, in a $2.5 billion deal between the two countries that is creating a rift within NATO.
Vladimir Kozhin, a Russian presidential aide for military cooperation, told the Rossiya 24 TV channel, “I think we will begin to fulfill [the deal with Turkey] sometime in early 2020,” TASS reported.
Kozhin said the weapon—an upgrade to the older S-300 system—would be delivered despite U.S. opposition to the deal. “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.”
