Russia is disposing of the C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, which at one time were intended for Syria, said InterfaxKonstantin Biryulin, deputy head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.
"They will be disposed of"- Biryulin told a journalist.
According to him, the decision to terminate the contract with Syria for the supply of complexes was made in the framework of UN sanctions by the leaders of the Russian Federation. “We did not break (the contract). This decision was made within the framework of the relevant UN sanctions, according to the decision of our political leadership. ”- said the agency interlocutor.
Biryulin noted that there were attempts to sell these air defense systems to other countries, but there were no buyers. "If this technique has not found the appropriate application, it will be disposed of"- said the deputy head of the FS BTC.
“There is such a moment (the possibility of resale of the complexes), but rather, the second option will be adopted here (recycling)”- summed up Biryulin.
