Report: Russia to Begin Delivery of S-300 Missile System to Iran in January
Russia will begin the delivery of S-300PMU-2 air defense systems to Iran in January, Russian news agency Tass reported Friday, citing a source in the military and technical cooperation system. Russian President Vladimir Putin had signed a decree in April lifting an export ban to Iran and making way for the long overdue delivery of the systems.
“It is planned to begin the process of delivery of the first regiment of the S-300PMU-2 air defense systems in January and to complete it in February. Iran is due to receive the second regiment of these systems in August or September 2016,” the source told the news agency. “Russia will thus fulfill its obligations to supply the S-300PMU-2 air defense systems to Iran.”
