Turkey has not yet deployed the S-400 air defense systems purchased in Russia

Turkey has not yet put on alert the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) purchased from Russia. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said this in an interview with CNN Turk TV channel.


Answering a journalist's question, Cavusoglu noted that the acquisition of the S-400 air defense system was a necessary measure, but at the moment the system has not yet been put on alert. The Turkish Foreign Minister did not name the reason for this.

The S-400s are not yet active. Our soldiers know what to do with activating the S-400. We bought this system because we needed it urgently

- he said.

Earlier, the Turkish authorities said that the commissioning of the S-400 air defense system will take place in April this year, but later the process of deploying the system was postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Note that Turkey has already conducted two tests of the S-400, having flown over it with Western-made fighters. In particular, American F-16 fighters participated in the tests, which caused outrage in Washington.

In total, Turkey purchased from Russia 4 divisions of the S-400 air defense system, the Turkish system's crews were trained in Russia. At the moment, the delivery of the second set of S-400s is being discussed, the parties have already reached an agreement, the issue is in payment. The previously announced information about the signing of a contract for the supply of the second set does not correspond to reality.

      It means not urgent, if you haven't deployed it yet! Or has something changed in relations with the states?

        Rather, Erdogan did not expect to be kicked out of the F-35 program in all seriousness.

        Missiles for the S-400 have not yet been delivered to Turkey. The author of the article could write about this too.

    Not activated and figs with them. It makes us neither hot nor cold. The money has been paid, the deal is closed. Then let the Turks play with them as they want.

          In one case - "The money has been paid, it makes us neither hot nor cold."
          In another case - "the money has not been paid .. But we are still neither cold nor hot .."

          There is no connection between this money and our hot / cold - you are right ..))

            Don't misinterpret my words. I wrote that we don't give a damn about the deployment or non-deployment of the Turks of the air defense system, because the money has been paid

              This is the second time you yourself focus on money ..

    The master-master ... they all hope to get their "penguins" ... And the United States is reasonably afraid that the S-400 will "see" them, and far enough ... And a possible leak will lead to a grandiose scandal.

      The penguins are over. Congressional law is not a presidential decree
      but much stronger. Erdogan has gone too far in his geopolitical games.
      The laws of Congress are long-term and difficult to repeal.

        You can describe the F-35 for Turkey, important, but not necessary. Kongres decided to choose the second option for the Turks.) The Turks protested, but they are satisfied, since it was clear that if they received the F-35, they would have been given the opportunity to use them. as my heart desires, maybe I would play a cruel joke with him. And now at least there is an incentive to create one. The F-35 program for the Turks was useful in terms of mastering knowledge and some technologies. That is, they were not in vain in this They stopped whining about what they had not received long ago. Talk only about their own aircraft, about upgrading existing ones, and, if necessary, about buying some kind of aircraft.

        It all depends on priorities. Now Erdogan will decide that he is on the way with the United States and everything will change. The Americans are great in this regard, they will come up with new rules, about a technology pact, for example. Where countries involved in the production of high-tech weapons have the right to test purchases of this equipment .And all Turks will get the right to test the F-35 and will test and test

          You are trying to transfer the political system of Russia to America.
          In Russia, Putin said: "be friends with Erdogan!" - immediately make friends.
          Tomorrow he will say: "Erdogan is not good!"
          In America, Congress does not care what the US president said today and what he will say tomorrow.
          A law was issued: "F-35 should not be sold to Turkey." And that's all. Trump, Biden, Obama
          can even beat their heads against the wall. laughing

            No, I'm not trying. It's just that the region itself is of strategic importance for the United States, and if the Americans could with 100% certainty, they would find justice for Erdogan. But they need Turkey as a whole and they cannot resolve this issue and not turn the Turkish people against themselves. ...
            That's why they are silent ...............

            Not everything is so simple. There is NATO, for example, and there is a military Schengen. This is such a bypass cartoon that allows you to transfer troops of NATO member countries without asking permission from the countries where they will be transferred ..
            Good idea, note for you. And I'm sure by all 200%, you need to get around the ban of Congress, in the United States they will find a law or agreement under which this can be done

        It was thanks to such congressional sanctions that Israel turned from an importer of arms into an exporter of military technology, that is, it fueled the incentive of the Israelis.
        well, let's wait and see what the Turks will do

        The Cossacks left the boat on the Turkish coast. A little turkonok runs up and bangs something in his own way. Cossack to Cossack: Look, take male, and the Turks! bully

    The previously announced information about the signing of a contract for the supply of the second set does not correspond to reality.

    MOSCOW, 23 August. / TASS /. The contract for the supply of the second set of S-400 to Turkey has already been signedThe financial terms of the contract are being discussed, the head of Rosoboronexport Alexander Mikheev told reporters on Sunday at the Army 2020 forum.

    For some reason, the head of Rosoboronexport trusts more than the author of the article.
    "The contract has been signed," Mikheev said, answering the relevant question.

    He clarified that now there is a discussion of the "financial model of contract execution."

    the system has not yet been put on alert. The reason this Turkish Foreign Minister did not name
    One can guess that Erdogan, fascinated by his "cunning" in international affairs, still wants to agree on something with the Americans. Therefore, they purchased it in spite of the United States, but do not activate it yet for the sake of the United States. This is the policy.
