The FSMTC responded to rumors about Turkey’s plans to send specialists on the S-400

The Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) of the Russian Federation denied information about Turkey’s plans to send Russian technical specialists on the S-400.

It was reported that the Turkish side plans to take such a step allegedly to satisfy the US demand.

“The return of Russian technical specialists who are in Turkey in connection with the contract for the S-400 will be carried out in accordance with the approved schedule,” the FSMTC said.

In mid-January 2021, the head of the Turkish Defense Ministry, Hulusi Akar, confirmed that the country continues negotiations with Russia on the supply of the second regiment of S-400 air defense systems. Then the Turkish leader Recep Erdogan shared the details of the situation with the purchase of weapons.

Later, the US Ambassador to Ankara, David Satterfield, warned the republic against buying a new batch of S-400 systems, saying that this decision “will lead to serious consequences and will cause more effective steps.”
