A journalist from the Washington Post asked Chemezov, “What is the strategic goal of selling Russian C-400 systems to Turkey,” which is a member of NATO. The agreement of the parties on this issue became known in September last year.
C-400 is not a system for attack, it is a defensive system. We can sell it to the Americans if they want. So there are no problems in terms of strategy. And I do not see any problems for Russia in terms of security. On the contrary, if a country is able to protect its airspace, it will feel more secure. And those who intend to attack such a country will think twiceanswered the head of the corporation.
According to him, today many countries would like to have such weapons, so the demand for it is great.
