Russia is considering the supply of Turkey the second batch of s-400

Russia was working to supply the second batch of air defense systems s-400, Turkey. About this informed the head of "Rosteh" Sergey Chemezov at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

The head of state Corporation has told about the early performance of a contract for the supply of Turkey systems s-400. Chemezov noted that this is the first deal of this scale with a country-a NATO member — the amount of the contract amounted to $ 2.5 billion.

"Now we are working on a possible second part of the supply", — quotes the website of the Kremlin.

Last year, Russia fulfilled the first contract for the supply of Turkey's four battalions of s-400 in the amount of $ 2.5 billion. The deal between the two countries caused the crisis in the relations between Turkey and the United States. Washington has demanded to withdraw from the contract and instead purchase American complexes Patriot, threatening to cancel the sale of Turkey's newest fighter the F-35 and to impose sanctions. Ankara has refused to compromise and continued negotiations on additional batch of s-400.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that Russia is prepared to offer Turkey a new contract for the supply of systems s-400. In June the parties reached an agreement on the supply of the second set of air defense systems.
