Russia starts delivery of S-400 air missile system to India

In a statement the head of Russia’s military cooperation agency said, Moscow has commenced delivery of the S-400 air defence missile systems to India, non-withstanding threat of US sanctions.

The commencement of deliveries of Russian weapons to India places New Delhi at risk of US sanctions under a 2017 U.S. law aimed at deterring countries from buying Russian military hardware. 

“The first supplies have already been started,” said Interfax at a statement at an aerospace trade show in Dubai.

The Indo-Russian $5.5 billion deal for five long-range surface-to-air missile systems was signed in 2018. New Delhi said, it needs the weapons to counter threats from a belligerent China.

New Delhi has a strategic partnership with both the United States and Russia. The United States had told India earlier that it was unlikely to get a waiver from CAATSA.
