Turkish military started training on S-400 air defense missile systems in Russia

Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said that Ankara has sent military personnel to Russia for training on the operation of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

"We sent our specialists to Russia for training on operating the S-400, training starts from today and will continue for several months,” he said.

“The number of staff is constantly changing, each has its own specifics. Training has already begun and will continue in the coming months,” said the head of the military department.

The head of the Turkish Defense Ministry, as reported by Reuters , also said that Ankara is continuing to hold a dialogue with Washington regarding the acquisition of Russian S-400 system, but at the same time is preparing to sanctions from its overseas partner, the US over S-400 deal with Russia.

Meanwhile, Akar spoke about the new US proposal for the supply of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems.

"On March 28-29, a new proposal for the Patriot air defense system was made. Negotiations are underway on their price, technology transfer and joint production,” the minister added.

A group of US congressmen representing both Democrats and Republicans introduced a resolution calling on several committees of the House of Representatives of the US Congress on May 16 to "fully apply sanctions" against Turkey within the framework of the Law on Countering America's Enemies through Sanctions (CAATSA), as well as the exclusion of Turkey from the program to create a fifth-generation fighter-bomber F-35 in the case of the acquisition of Ankara from Russia S-400.

Resolutions of the House of Representatives and the Senate, which are adopted separately by each House of Congress, have no legal force and are recommendatory in nature.

So lawmakers express their position on a particular issue, and the executive branch has the right to ignore such documents.
