Turkey denies the use of Russian S-400 air defense systems to track Greek F-16s

Turkey categorically denies using the S-400 anti-aircraft system acquired from Russia to track the F-16 fighters of the Greek Air Force. This statement was made by the Turkish Ambassador to the United States Serdar Kilic.


Speaking at the video conference, Kilic said that Turkey did not use the Russian S-400 air defense system to track Greek F-16 fighters over the Mediterranean Sea. According to him, if Ankara has tested this system, then it has coordinated all actions with NATO partners in advance.

There can be no such talk. Even if these weapons have been tested, such an action is coordinated through the military channels of NATO, of which we are a member.

- the ambassador said.

The day before, the US called on the State Department to impose sanctions against Turkey for activating the S-400 air defense system to track American-made F-16 fighters returning from exercises in France, Italy, Greece and Cyprus. Also in the US Congress, Ankara is accused of using its own F-16s to test the S-400 last year.

In turn, as previously reported by "Voennoye Obozreniye", the Greek media demand from Turkey to obtain documentary guarantees that the S-400 was not used to track the F-16 of the Greek Air Force.

    Yeah, the Turks from 400 just bought it so that they would gather dust in the closet .. The European people have long included sanctions against Turkey, but they are afraid of an influx of bearded men ..

      Greek media demands to obtain documentary guarantees from Turkey that the S-400 was not used to track the F-16 of the Greek Air Force.

      First, the media of another, and hostile, country is so-so "demanding people".
      And secondly, how do they imagine it? An official document - "I swear by my mother, we have not watched anything" performed by the Turkish side?
      Or we looked but saw nothing, infidels, believe us

        What mass media in Greece require this VO refers to them but alas, they do not give any links or names. The question arises, was there a boy? Moreover, if there is indignation, what kind of media is it expressed, whose interests these media represent.

        The language of diplomacy is used in order to deceive the opposing side.
        Now, let Putin have a headache to find a way to burn out the AFAR reception area of ​​Turkish S-400

          Putin would not be Putin if he did not foresee this option.
          First, all tactical information is sent to the Old Scout's computer, and then something is sent to the indicators of Turkish operators. laughing

            We are not interested in information, because our own is enough without the "E" index, but we are interested in the indicators of our enemy being empty, but whether we can give misinformation - I doubt: Turkey is still not Somalia ...

    Let the NATO allies fight each other and we express our deepest concern. It is not all the same for us to sort out relations with the former republics.

    Having bought the S-400 from us, Turkey now has an advantage in the NATO bloc compared to other members. there is
    now the opportunity to bring them down. From here the howl rises.

    All the technologies of the Turkish military come from the West. If Washington just stands up with its left foot, the Turkish army will return to the middle of the 20th century.

      Moreover, if Washington gets up on the wrong foot and Russia immediately sets off .. It is enough to conclude a deal with China and the Chinese will not supply us with electronics, and the United States can block the software .. they may not sell us seeds .. in general, a lot of things can if they really want and feel the threat from us ..

    The world is definitely filled with crazy elves. Gentlemen, how are we all going to fight? On the principle of lying down, they do not beat.? Is a soldier's tears a reason not to kill him? Kindergarten. And so in everything. And the most offensive, because this is a show designed for the public, who were assured that in the event the beginning of the DB would not affect them, because they are peaceful, and the soldiers and equipment that will defend them are perfect and invincible.

    Turkey does not deny that it can close the Black Sea with these S-400s. Is she a NATO member or where?
