Russia Halts Supply of S-400 Missile Defense System

Russia suspends deliveries of S-400 missiles to China.

China has suffered a major setback by its friendly country Russia amidst tensions with India. Russia has stopped supplying surface-to-air S-400 missile defense systems to China. Russia has stated that the date will be set for future deliveries.

Quoting the Chinese Newspaper Sohu, Russian media agency UAWire said, "This time Russia has announced that it is prohibiting handing over the S-400 missile system to China." It is clear from this step that mere agreement to purchase arms does nothing. It is important that you get not just bills but also weapons.

Sohu said that Russia says the work of delivering these weapons is quite complicated, as China will have to do, which is a difficult task for military personnel and difficult task for training a lot of People's Liberation Army (PLA) in the current era. Russia's announcement was distracted and it would have sent technical staff to China.

Explaining that Russia also had to take the help of arms service in a compulsion that China has a large number of its own to bring six S-400s in 2014, because it does not want the defense technical personnel to get three billion dollars for Beijing. The deal was with Russia to deal with the Coronavirus.
