Litovkin emphasized:”In all arms sales contracts signed between Russia and foreign countries, there is a special clause that prohibits the transfer of Russian weapons and technical equipment. To a third party. Undoubtedly, a similar clause was written in the contract for the supply of S-400 to Turkey. If the clause is violated, Russia will impose sanctions and may prosecute-Turkey will face huge fines. The United States attempts to use various means to force Turkey’s abandonment of Russian-made anti-aircraft missile systems demonstrates an inferiority complex.”

Litovkin concluded:“Even if it is assumed, for some incredible reason, El Doan suddenly agreed to sell the S-400 to the United States, and Russia will not make the situation dramatic. There are several reasons. First, the quality of any Russian export weaponry is the same as that of the same series of weapons systems installed in the Russian army. Different. That is to say, the United States or other third countries still cannot obtain all the secrets. The second reason is that sooner or later the United States will reach out to S-400-sooner or later, other Gulf allies in India, Saudi Arabia or the United States will buy it. It’s just a matter of time. Countries trying to hand over Russian weapons and equipment to the United States will understand that they face more severe prospects in addition to fines. Since then they may not be able to purchase the latest Russian weapons and equipment that could be used to protect national security, which is to prevent contracts An important factor that was violated.”
