Russia handed over to India the S-400 air defense system in 2023

Russia's S-400 cargo system will be completed by April 2023 under a $ 5 billion contract signed in India, a senior military official said Wednesday. Last October on the sidelines of Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to India.

In response to a question, India's Minister of State for Defense Sheribad Naik told parliament today that India's decision to buy missiles from Russia was based on a perceived threat, operational and technological aspects, and that it aims to maintain the readiness of the Indian armed forces .

Nike did not respond directly to a question from deputies on whether the United States had threatened India sanctions as a result of the defense system deal.

The United States has imposed sanctions on Russia's Rosoboronexport, the Russian government responsible for exporting arms, because of Moscow's involvement in the Ukrainian crisis.

The S-400 missile deal is subject to US sanctions under the anti-American legislation known as the Katsa Penal Code.
