According to the Russian satellite network in June 13th, El, President of Turkey, said that, if necessary, Ankara decided to use the S-400 air defense missile system from Russia.
El said on the TGRT TV program: "we bought S-400 not to store them in warehouses. When necessary, they will be used properly. "
Russia and Turkey signed a loan agreement on the purchase of S-400 air defense missile system from Ankara to Russia in December 29, 2017. Russia will sell 4 sets of S-400 air defense missile system to Turkey, and Russia plans to supply the first S-400 air defense missile system in March 2020. The S-400 arms sales agreement between Russia and Turkey has been opposed by western countries. El, President of Turkey, said in September 2017 that Turkey had the right to establish an independent national defense force. Other countries had no right to interfere.
The United States announced new sanctions on Russia in April 6th, with both companies and individuals in the 38 sanctions, including the Russian Defense export company, the Russian financial group company and the Russian Aluminum Corporation. American assistant secretary of state Weiss Mitchell said earlier that Turkey's plan to buy a US F-35 could also be adversely affected once Turkey was to buy Russian air defense missile systems or fall into the United States.
The S-400 "triumphant" air defense missile system is used to combat all modern and future air offensive weapons in the middle and long range, including strategic bombers, ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and hypersonic targets.
