‘Russia to fulfill S-400 sale to Turkey despite Patriot deal’ | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


‘Russia to fulfill S-400 sale to Turkey despite Patriot deal’

The Kremlin says there is no link between Turkey’s possible purchase of US Patriot surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems and that of the advanced Russian-built S-400 air defense missile system, saying Moscow is in the process of fulfilling the terms of the deal with Ankara.

“These are not connected processes. In this case, we are fulfilling agreements that we have with our Turkish colleagues. You know that the contract is being fulfilled. This will be continued,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

Peskov's remarks came a day after the Pentagon announced that the US State Department had approved a possible $3.5 billion sale of Patriot missile systems to its NATO-ally Turkey, after notifying Congress of the certification.
