Russia Withdraws Plans To Deliver S-300 Missile System To Syria

Alexander Fomin, the head of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation told reporters on Tuesday that the S-300 missile defence system promised to Syria will now not be delivered.

The Syrian government requested the S-300’s back in 2014 when it felt under threat from a U.S. military strike.

Tass reports:

“There are no such plans as of today,” he said, answering a question whether the possibility of supplying these weapons systems to Syria was negotiated.

In 2014, the Syrian government turned to Moscow with a request to supply the S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria due “to a possible US attack” on the country.

The S-300 is a series of highly capable, long-range surface-to-air missile complexes first deployed in the USSR in 1979 and later modified by the Russian armed forces. As well as targeting aircraft, the fully mobile units have the capacity to engage ballistic missiles.S-300
