"Without looking back at the United States": Erdogan spoke about plans to purchase the second regiment of the S-400 air defense system

Turkey will make an independent decision on the purchase of the second regiment of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft system, without looking back at the United States or other states. This was stated by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.


Speaking to reporters in Istanbul, the Turkish leader said that no country has the right to determine Turkish policy in the field of national defense, so Ankara will independently decide on the purchase of the second batch of Russian S-400 air defense systems.

No country will determine our steps in national defense, they completely depend on our own decisions. The issue of the first S-400 regiment has been resolved, now work is continuing on the issue of the second batch. At the end of the month, we will have negotiations with Russia, and among other topics, we will certainly discuss it.

- he said.

Erdogan added that after the inauguration of the new US president, the discussion of the problems that arose in connection with the purchase of the S-400 will continue in the new administration, but even if the conversation with Biden does not work out, permission to purchase the second S-400 regiment Turkey will not ask the United States.

I don't know what Biden will say, but we won't take any permission from anyone anyway.

- he stressed.

Earlier, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said that negotiations on the acquisition of the second regiment of the S-400 air defense system are underway. Turkey has already given preliminary consent to the purchase of the system, it remains to settle some of the nuances associated with the production of S-400 components in Turkish territory.

    Sultanka senses something is wrong, wants to reliably cover the sky.

    Hopefully they'll only let them paint. No need to transfer technology to them and reinforce them again

      Most likely, such speeches by Erdogan will only spur the United States to a further choice of ways to overthrow him, so that other countries of the world, and even more so NATO countries, do not follow this fashion (for the purchase of Russian products).
      The example of the persecution of the current US president should serve as a bright lesson for Erdogan in how the Anglo-Saxons treat rebellious and wayward leaders, even if they are the leaders of their country.

    Erdogan always dreams of transferring technology for the production of the S-400. Dreaming is not harmful.

    Erdogad wants to have F35 from USA, and C400 from Russia! Truly, the unkind Sultan wants to benefit from the two countries! Only, as if the United States did not get him for obstinacy! Patience tends, like a freebie, to end. ..

      Well, with the F-35, their Wishlist is clear. Turkey is one of the main participants in the project. They poured billions into the F-35 billion, and the US threw them. but at the same time it is clearly visible what is more important for sovereignty. S400 turned out to be more important than F-35 for which it has already been paid wink

      Duc there is an export option. do you know how the export differs from the drill? see the characteristics of missiles 3M14 and 3M14E wink the first shot successfully at 1500 km, and the second had a range of 300 km.

    Many were very indignant about the sale of the S-400 to the Turks, they say, the enemy would copy everything, hand it over to the states for study, but in fact they drove such a wedge into their "friendly" ranks.
    Let's see how it will be

        In such complexes, the main thing is not a company base .. The Turks could collect 100% of imported ones.
        The most important thing there are algorithms .. for generating a radiation signal and processing the received data .. It is almost impossible to get these algorithms, unauthorized access destroys logic. All that is left is to buy all the aircraft that are in the S-400 base .. fly them around it from all angles and different weather conditions .. and get the desired signatures ... and this is just the beginning ...

        This is not certainty - it is a fact. Erdogan is playing his independent game. But this does not exclude the possibility that these weapons may someday fall into the hands of the states for study. It's just that complete obedience is much more important to them, they do not like when someone starts to act not according to their rules.

    S-400 technologies are a separate topic, they cost much more than the S-400 regiment. Therefore, as with the USA - buy RD-180 engines as much as you want, but there is no production technology. NATO country and that says it all. hi

    Oh, and we played with Erdogan. He behaves insolently, putting his demands ahead of himself. And Russia is even flattered that he is doing a favor by buying the S-400. We are ready to give up our ambitions for 3 lard. Erdogan openly launched military support for Ukraine. His foreign minister openly stated that they would provide any support to Ukraine upon the return of Crimea. After this, we would have to close the "tourist flow", exporting 8-10 billion dollars to Turkey, but no, we are generous.
    Who will respect us for such a "flexible", or rather "about a flexible policy" ?! In addition, the East respects the buyer who knows how to bargain.
