- March 9, 2019
“If Turkey takes the S400s there will be grave consequences in terms of our military relationship with them and with the Patriots and the F-35s,” acting chief Pentagon spokesperson Charles Summers said.
The Turkish defense minister has said that buying Russian S-400 air defense systems is a matter of necessity, vital for the protection of the country’s population.
Also the Defense Minister Hulusi Akar confirmed the deployment of the Russian-made systems will begin in October.
