    Isn't this delivery for S-300 PMU2 ?

    Newer would mean S-400.?
    News are saying that there are NO negotiations about S-400 at the present.

    So either they are looking for more PMU2 or Russia is dicking around again.

    Iran to purchase Russian «Ansat» helicopters for air ambulances

    According to Russia’s Kazan Helicopters manufacturing company director general, a subsidiary of the holding, is ready to deliver its Ansat multipurpose utility helicopters to Iran.

    The Ministry of Health and Medical Education of Iran intends to purchase ANSAT helicopters produced by the Kazan Helicopter Plant, the press service of the President of Tatarstan announced.

    Russia Wants to Sell Advanced Fighter Jets to Iran – and the US Wants to Stop It

    The Fiscal Times By Martin Matishak
    April 6, 2016 5:45 PM

    The U.S. is ready to step in to prevent Russia from selling advanced fighter jets to Iran.

    In a statement issued Wednesday, State Department spokesman Mark Toner told The Washington Free Beacon that Washington is opposed to Moscow selling advanced Sukhoi Su-30SM warplanes to Tehran. The U.S. claims such a sale would violate the United Nations Security Council Resolution governing last year’s nuclear agreement between Iran and various Western powers.

    “In terms of the specific reports about the proposed sale of the Sukhoi Su-30SM multi-role fighter jets, for example, we would almost certainly veto such a sale, as provision of such equipment to Iran would further exacerbate existing tensions in the region,” Toner told the Free Beacon.

    U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231 “prohibits the sale to Iran of specified categories of conventional arms as defined for the purposes of the U.N. Register of Conventional Arms, without approval in advance on a case-by-case basis by the U.N. Security Council,” he added.

    That “includes the Su-30SM fighter,” according to Toner.

    The warplane, which was part of Moscow’s arsenal in its aggressive air campaign in Syria, is comparable to the American F-15E Strike Eagle fighter-bomber.

    Russia’s uptick in arms sales to Iran in the wake of the nuclear deal, and to other countries including China, has caused serious consternation in Washington. The Obama administration views the moves as part of President Vladimir Putin’s scheme to make Russia a superpower again, as well as a way to fill the Kremlin’s coffers after years of international economic sanctions and recent low oil prices.

    For now, it seems, the State Department is not taking issue with Russia’s separate deal with Iran for the S-300 air defense missile system. The countries signed an $800 million contract in 2007 for the supply of five air-to-ground missile systems, but the transaction was frozen in 2010 due to U.N. sanctions.

    Putin approved delivery of the air defense missile system in April 2015. The sale is permitted under existing U.N. resolutions because it is considered defensive, according to the State Department.

    As for the fighter jets, since the U.N. resolution pertaining to the deal does include prohibitions on arms sales to and from Iran, the U.S. would likely have to call for a vote in the Security Council to specifically block the transaction.

    Such diplomatic maneuvering would do nothing to improve the frosty relationship that has existed between Washington and Moscow ever since the Kremlin annexed the Crimean peninsula in early 2014.

    It’s also unclear if a Security Council vote would go Washington’s way. Other countries that were part of the nuclear agreement negotiations -- like China, already a buyer of Russian military hardware -- are eager to do more business with Iran, which wants to boost its military capability after decades of sanctions. Beijing might side with Russia in order to facilitate arms deals of its own in the future.

    Russia may supply radiolocation, electronic warfare systems to Iran

    Russia may supply radiolocation, electronic warfare systems to Iran

    Russia may supply additional types of armaments not subject to existing bans to Iran, the chief of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, said Tuesday.

    "We have contracts with Iran, other contracts are also possible, but the talk is only about the permitted objects of supply, which are not on the UN’s ban list," Fomin said when asked whether the delivery of other weapons besides S-300 missile systems was discussed.

    The service chief said that the permitted armaments include small arms and other products, including non-lethal, radiolocation and electronic warfare systems etc.


    Russia’s S-300 missile system delivery to Iran going partly ahead of schedule

    According to the official, the supply of Russia’s S-300 air defense missile systems to Iran is meeting the schedule, even going partly ahead of schedule.
    He said that he hoped that everything would be ok.

    On April 11, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio station Russia had started sales of S-300 systems to Iran, with the deal to be completed by the end of the year. "We are acting in strict compliance with the contract. They pay, we sell. We have already started. It is a supply in full sets," he said.


    On April 21, the Islamic Republic’s parliament speaker, Ali Larijani, said in an exclusive interview with TASS First Deputy Director-General Mikhail Gusman that the delivery of Russian S-300 surface-to-air missile systems (NATO reporting name SA-10 Grumble) to Iran boosted security in the region. "As regards the contract for supplies of S-300s, the issue is the cornerstone of defense sphere talks between Iran and Russia," Larijani said.

    "The situation in the region obliges us to have stable security. That’s why we had to decide by which means and measures that stable security could be achieved." "We believed that if Iran and Russia are able to reach long-term agreements, this may contribute to achievement of stable security," he said.

    Russia and Iran signed a contract in 2007 for the supply of five S-300PMU-1 battalions but in the autumn of 2010 then-President Dmitry Medvedev banned the supply of these systems to Tehran. The contract worth more than $800 million was annulled and the paid advance was returned to Iran.

    Iran filed an almost $4 billion lawsuit against Russia at the Geneva Court of Arbitration over Russia’s nonfulfillment of the contract.In the spring of 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted the ban on the supply of S-300 systems to Teheran.

    TASS learned at the Dubai Airshow 2015 international aerospace exhibition that Iran would get the S-300PMU-2 version of the air defense system.

    Russia says ready to make T-90s in Iran


    Iran Press TV

    Thu Apr 28, 2016 12:49PM

    Russia announced on Thursday that it is considering a plan that involves the licensed production of T-90 tanks in Iran in what could mark a new chapter in strategic relations between the two countries.

    The announcement has been made by Vyacheslav Khalitov, the deputy general director of the UralVagonZavod (UVZ) which is the largest battle tank manufacturer in the world.

    Khalitov has been quoted as saying by Interfax news agency as saying that the project to produce T-90s in Iran will go ahead as soon as there is a proposal from Tehran.

    "We are ready, if the customer wants it," Khalitov said.

    Iran has already purchased Russia's S-300 missile defense systems for $800 million and has started to receive the early batches of the system which will be fully delivered over the next months.

    Iran's Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan left for Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the delivery of S-300 as well as several other issues of mutual interest.

    Iran's Embassy in Moscow has announced in a statement that Dehqan is expected to discuss purchases of Russian Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets and T-90 tanks during his visit.

    Russia's media said in February that Tehran had handed Moscow a major shopping list involving arms and military equipment.

    Sources close to the Russian government said at the time that Iran's Defense Minister Dehqan was to visit Moscow later in February to discuss new sales contracts that were collectively estimated to be around $8 billion.

    "Iran would like to buy Russia's latest S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system, developed by Almaz-Antey. And they make no secret of it. On the eve of his visit to Moscow Dehqan openly said to Iranian media they want to purchase the S-400s," Interfax quoted a source close to the Russian government as saying.

    According to Interfax's source, the second important topic of Dehqan's talks in Moscow was expected to be Tehran's possible procurement, or even a licensed production of the new Russian Sukhoi Su- 30SM multi-role fighter.

    Iran is also interested in Russia's Bastion mobile coastal defense missile system, equipped with supersonic Yakhont anti-ship missiles, along with Mi-8/17 helicopters and other arms, Interfax added.

    Tanks, ships, missiles and other attack weapons fall under UN sanctions


    SOCHI, May 18. /TASS/. Russia has no intention of selling tanks to Iran, the chief of the federal service for military-technical cooperation Alexander Fomin has said.
    "Such deals might be possible only when the bans are gone. Tanks, ships, missiles and other attack weapons fall under UN sanctions," he said.
    The official has also pointed out that Russia is not working on "absolutely new " contracts to supply Iran with weapons.
    "We are not holding quite new (talks) on supplies," he said.
    Fomin has also noted that Russia has delivered part of the first shipment of S-300 (NATO reporting name: SA-10 Grumble) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems to Iran.
    "We have been delivering S-300 to Iran ever since a decision to this effect was made. The deliveries are under way," Fomin said. He refused to specify the exact number of equipment pieces, which had been sent to Iran. "Part of the first shipment has arrived [in Iran]," Fomin said.


    Licensed tank production
    Earlier, the commander of Iran’s ground forces, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, said Iran would like to have Russia’s T-90 main battle tank. Later he said that negotiations on the issue had been held with Russian officials and the corresponding proposal for purchasing T-90 tanks had been handed over to the General Staff of Iran’s armed forces. Ahmad Reza Pourdastan back then said the country preferred not to purchase Russia’s T-90 tanks, but to establish their production in the country.
    Russia’s Uralvagonzavod company in February said it was ready to set up licensed production of the T-90S gun launcher-armed tanks in Iran in case restrictions on military-technical cooperation with that country were lifted.
    Russia’s main battle gun launcher-armed tank T-90S is equipped with an automated fire control system. It is a light tank (46.5 tons) with a low profile, which increases its survivability.

    Iran plans negotiations with Russia on purchase of Sukhoi fighters

    Iran's Ministry of Defense the country needs to strengthen its air force

    TEHRAN, August 22. /TASS/. Iran will not need additional air defense systems after getting from Russia the S-300 anti-aircraft missile defense systems and commissioning Iran’s similar system Bavar (Belief) 373. Therefore, Iran's Ministry of Defense intends to focus on negotiations with Russia on the purchase of the Sukhoi aircraft, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan told Iran’s TV on Sunday evening.

    "We don’t need other long-range air defense systems, (in addition to the S-300 and Bavar-373), we no longer plan to purchase them. Therefore, the Iranian Defense Ministry’s agenda includes consultations with Russia on the purchase of Sukhoi aircraft. We need to strengthen our Air Force," he said.

    According to him, complex tests of the Bavar-373 air defense missile system will be held in the near future. "At the request of the President (of Iran Hassan Rouhani), the first test will be intercepting a ballistic missile. If the tests prove successful, the system will go into serial production, and its combat deployment will begin before the end of the year", the minister said.

    On Sunday, Tehran hosted an exhibition of achievements of the Iranian defense industry. The exhibition for the first time presented to the general public the Bavar 373 system, which, according to Iranian sources, is an analogue of Russia’s S-300, as well as Iran’s first national turbojet engine that has been named Owj.

    Iran had signed a contract with Russia on the supply of the S-300 missile defense systems in 2007. However, its implementation was suspended after the United Nations Security Council passed on June 9, 2010 resolution 1929 which banned the transfer of any state-of-the-art weapons, including missile and missile systems, to Teheran. In April 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted the ban on supplies of S-300 systems to Iran and the contract was resumed in November 2015.

    The contract will be implemented by the year end, according to Sergei Chemezov, CEO of Russia’s state corporation Rostec.

    Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said previously Russia had fulfilled 50% of its liabilities under the contract.

    I do not know the reliability of this news. Until now Russia is still reluctant to sell these sophisticated aircraft at Iran. US pressures ? Israelis pressures ? I do not know, but this assertion is dubious. If someone among you could verify please.

    The regime is going to expire in about 5 to 8 years time...

    Meanwhile:
    On 9 June 2010 Security Council Resolution 1929, not unanimously adopted, imposed further restrictions on arms exports to Iran. Resolution 1929 inter alia prohibits states to directly or indirectly supply, or help to supply, Iran with major conventional weapons as defined by the UN Register of Conventional Weapons - battle tanks, armoured combat vehicles, large calibre artillery, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, certain missiles and missile launchers (more information on the UN Register and its coverage can be found here.) The resolution also prohibits the supply of related spare parts along with 'technical training, advice, services or assistance related to the provision, manufacture, maintenance or use of' the listed items.

    So I do not believe for a moment that Russia is going to frontally say fuck you to the UN.

    On 9 June 2010 Security Council Resolution 1929, not unanimously adopted, imposed further restrictions on arms exports to Iran. Resolution 1929 inter alia prohibits states to directly or indirectly supply, or help to supply, Iran with major conventional weapons as defined by the UN Register of Conventional Weapons - battle tanks, armoured combat vehicles, large calibre artillery, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, certain missiles and missile launchers (more information on the UN Register and its coverage can be found here.) The resolution also prohibits the supply of related spare parts along with 'technical training, advice, services or assistance related to the provision, manufacture, maintenance or use of' the listed items.

    So I do not believe for a moment that Russia is going to frontally say fuck you to the UN.

    Can somebody tell me why the F Russia agreed to "this"???

    ...Except that resolution may not even survive 8 months, as both Hillary and Trump plan on vacating it after being elected so...

    UN must not only said "Fuck You", but deserved to be obliterated. Since 1991 Russia is harassed by US, mugged by US. The only US goal is to disintegrate Russia's federation. The wars in Chechenya, and the attack of Beslam's school, attack of theatre of Doubrovka in Moscow US were behind all. Russians were slaughtered in Ukraine, US were behind all, and UN validated this situation. Georgia attacked Russia, slaughtered nearly 250 russian civilians, US were behind. Is it all ? Russia validated the barbaric US stance, and refuse to help a country that is attacked by US too. A country that is willing to be a strategic ally, and a strategic asset for Russia. Worst!
    If Russia sell these fighters to Iran, US could not afford to confront Iran, and could not afford to maintain its hegemony in the Middle East, and US empire will collapse definitely. And what are the Kremlin's leaders doing ? They still comply of US stances ! Sometimes I wonder whether the leaders that are in Moscow are not part of US empire, in spite of the russian people's will.
