“Despite the sanctions, we delivered ahead of schedule all the S-400 air defense system components to Turkey, created and opened the world's first joint venture for the production of Kalashnikov 200 series guns in India,” the press service of the company quotes Mikheev.

In October, Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan noted that Russia will complete the third phase of the supply of systems in November or December of this year.

As stressed in Ankara, the deployment of the S-400 in Turkey will continue until the spring of 2020.
