As soon as this news came out, netizens lamented that Jiang Guoran was old and spicy. One trick is too ruthless. After all, Russia’s S-400 air defense missile system has always been at the world’s leading level, and its missile interception performance is unmatched. Once the United States acquires the system, wouldn’t all Russia be in danger?

However, according to the report on July 2nd, Russia responded to the US as early as June 30th. Without Russia’s consent, Turkey has no right to purchase the S-400 air defense system from Russia. Resell third country. Russian military expert Litovkin emphasized:”In all military sales contracts signed between Russia and other countries, there is a special clause specifically forbidding purchasers to transfer Russian weapons and technology to other countries.” If a country violates the terms, Russia will impose sanctions on it. Moreover, once Turkey resells the S-400 air defense system to the United States, Turkey will not only face huge fines but will also be prohibited from buying the latest Russian weapons and equipment.

In addition, even due to some special In the circumstances, the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system that Russia sold to other countries fell into the hands of the United States, and the United States could not crack its system. Because Russia has long been prepared for this, any weapons and equipment exported by Russia, whether in terms of quality or system, are different from the same series of weapons owned by the Russian military. Therefore, even if the United States obtains Turkey’s S-400 air defense missile system, it will not help.

For the unilateral opposition of the United States to Turkey’s purchase of the S-400 air defense missile system, Turkey has not given a positive response. However, as early as June 8 this year, Turkey has already demonstrated its pro-Russia position with behavior. At that time, Turkey did not fear the coercion of the United States and signed a contract with Russia on the technology transfer of the S-400 air defense missile system.

As a result, the United States was reasonably eager to ease relations with Turkey the last time Explanation. Perhaps it is because the Turkish side is not only very tough on the purchase of the S-400 air defense missile system, but also fearless of the threat of US sanctions. The United States began to panic. After all, the relationship between the United States and NATO has also reached an impasse because Turkey is determined to purchase the S-400 air defense missile system. To break the deadlock, the United States must first ease relations with Turkey.

Russian media also said that after the United States failed to force Turkey to abandon the S-400 air defense missile system, it also tried to use the defense budget to buy Turkey’s S-400 air defense missile system. This is enough to show that the United States was fighting Russia. Has an inferiority complex. Russian military expert and retired colonel Viktor Litovkin commented to the United States that Washington is annoyed by the loss of global political influence. (Liu Nineteen)
