India starts receiving ‘game changer’ S-400 surface-to-air missile systems

Russia has started the delivery of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems to India, according to a senior Russian official.

Russia’s Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Dmitry Shugaev told Sputnik news that the deliveries are going as planned.

Following US sanctions on Turkey over the procurement of S-400 missile systems, there have been apprehensions that Washington may impose similar punitive measures on India.
