Recent years have seen a growing demand in the global market for various types of Russian-made weapons. At the same time, interest in American weapons drops.
You may recall, for example, that Washington neither threats nor persuasion could force Ankara to abandon the purchase of Russian air defense system.
Another “bad news” for the United States, the Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on information policy Alexei Pushkov called the message that Moscow and Riyadh began to discuss the terms of the contract to supply anti-aircraft missile system s-400 “Triumph”, which was signed in 2017.
According to the Russian Senator, the surprise here is not worth it. The Saudis were convinced of the unreliability they use the American missile defense system after the refineries of the Kingdom were attack drones. It became clear that effective protection can only be achieved With 400.
The Americans themselves understand that their “patriot” can’t compete with the s-400. He Secretary of state Mike Pompeo acknowledged that their weapons “through time”. But “our s-400 are always, not from time to time”, – wrote Pushkov in his Twitter.
Note that Saudi Arabia is not the only country that wants to protect themselves with the help of Russian air defense system. According to the official representative of the Federal service for military-technical cooperation (FSMTC) Maria Vorobyeva, the interest to be purchased from Russia s-400 even several countries in the Middle East.
