Foreign press: Turkey is going to send home Russian specialists-instructors for the operation of the S-400 air defense system

23

Selcan Hajaoglu, a Turkish reporter for Bloomberg, writes that Ankara is preparing to "send a signal to US President Joseph Biden." The correspondent's material says that the Turkish command intends to send home Russian specialists-instructors in the field of operation of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM).


Some time ago, Turkish media published information that Russian specialists were sent to Turkey to train Turkish military and technicians in the use of S-400 Triumph air defense systems supplied from the Russian Federation on the basis of a contract. These publications were not officially commented on in the Russian Federation. At the same time, the United States called on Turkey to first abandon the supply of these complexes, then from their deployment, citing the fact that the Russian-made air defense systems "cannot be integrated into the NATO air defense system." Ankara said that they would not abandon the S-400, recalling that there are other Russian-made S-300 complexes in Greece, "which do not interfere with the unified NATO air defense system." In response, the United States imposed anti-Turkish sanctions, excluding the country from the F-35 program and freezing the accounts of the leadership of the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate.

Hajaoglu:

Turkey will send Russian specialists in the field of anti-aircraft missile weapons home. This will signal Biden ahead of his scheduled meeting with President Erdogan.

The author believes that in this way Ankara can demonstrate to the United States its readiness to make certain concessions on the issue of operating the S-400 air defense system. According to Hajaoglu, Turkey intends to operate the S-400 "without Russian control." The statement of the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlut Cavusoglu is cited:

These air defense systems will be operated under the full control of Turkey.

Cavusoglu made this statement during negotiations with his Greek counterpart.

The foreign press does not provide information on whether Ankara is going to send Russian specialists to the Russian Federation before the expiration of the agreement, or whether Russian instructors will leave home simply because the training course for the Turkish military has been completed in full. At the same time, Ankara once again emphasizes that they are not going to abandon the S-400.

    If you send our specialists before the end of the course, then the Turks will have to go to us to finish their studies. It's elementary, Watson.

        Here it is more likely not a fake, but a "coloring" of information. The Turks studied, passed the exam, and got a badge for the "right to drive" S-400. Our guys went home. And they presented this absolutely ordinary fact as a "signal to Biden".
        At the time of EBN, there was an anecdote on this topic:
        At a meeting between the presidents of Russia and the United States, Yeltsin and Clinton well noted this meeting and agreed to run a hundred-meter race in a drunken bench in the morning for a bet. Naturally, the younger and more athletic Clinton beat Yeltsin to the fullest. The American press reported about this race: "... today our president competed with the Russian president in the 100m race. America, as it should be, is the first, and Russia is the second."
        And the message in our press: "... Boris Nikolayevich, together with Clinton, took part in the international race. Boris Nikolayevich came to the finish line second, and Clinton was the penultimate ..."

          So this anecdote appeared long before Yeltsin and Clinton, and the heroes in it were somewhat different))

            This is how this anecdote appeared long before Yeltsin and Clinton.

            I do not argue, the anecdote is old. But I heard it in the EBN-Clinton interpretation. hi

              old joke

              The trick is that Biden is now old.
              So the anecdote can be mirrored about the Russian media and Psaki's statement

      It's still more fun here, with the S-400 Turkey can shoot down any plane from the Injerlik Base or another airbase, or another plane or helicopter and NATO, and its own Armed Forces, where F-16 and F-15 predominate, and Apaches, and other western strikers , who will try to do something without the President's sanction on their own, taking off only with the permission of the base management. What took place during the attempted mutiny and when our Su-24 was taken down from the sky in the back. So, for Sultan Erdogan, the S-400 is a vital and necessary contraption. A guarantor, one might say, of his physical and political existence in a sense. There will be no him - the khan to the sultan. Hence the attitude of the journalist, apparently the guy is paid for such hack. So he tries. Prepares public opinion.

    The trouble is, they will send our specialists home, but they have not fully taught the Turks. As the most cunning button was not shown to press and ........ So maybe the complex will not work at the right time, but it will be broken. Then look for the reasons. wassat

      Yes, do not care about the loss of the complex due to Turkish mediocrity. They are in NATO and we need to help them exactly as much as is spelled out in the contract for the supply of air defense systems. The rest are themselves.

        In fact, the training of specialists took place even before the delivery of the complex in Russia, most likely, they send home engineers who helped with the deployment and followed those. the state of the S-400 in order to eliminate possible problems on the spot

      no data is provided on whether Ankara is going to send Russian specialists to the Russian Federation before the expiration of the agreement, or whether Russian instructors will leave home simply because the training course for the Turkish military has been completed in full.

      So maybe they have already taught and that's enough. Or even on duty for them to intercede? It will be fat, and so the freebie is solid.

    The foreign press does not provide information that Is Ankara going to send Russian specialists to the Russian Federation before the expiration of the agreement, or will Russian instructors leave home simply because that the training course for the Turkish military was carried out in full.

    A living example of how Bloomberg, the American information provider, misleads the crowd.

    According to Hajaoglu, Turkey intends to operate the S-400 "without Russian control."
    IMHO, there is nothing to discuss here! Any country intends to use the purchased equipment at its own discretion, including military ones, so at the end of the training our instructors will return home and this is only a signal for conspiracy theorists, such as Hajaoglu.

    They sucked the news out of their fingers. The specialists did their job - they trained the operator, it's time to go home.
