MOSCOW, Russia – Russian presidential aide for military and technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said on Thursday that Russia will grant Turkey a loan so that it can purchase the S-400 air defense missile system.
The first deliveries of the famous missile defense system are expected to arrive in Turkey in late 2019-early 2020.
“All the issues have been resolved and I discussed this theme while literally entering this hall, Kozhin said.
“The contract is entering the implementation stage actually in coming days. A part of the contract will be paid for by the Turkish side and the other part will be covered by a loan granted by the Russian side,” the presidential aide explained.
“The deliveries will begin in late 2019 – early 2020,” he added.
The delivery of S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey is a deal worth over $2 billion.
