In New York, Erdogan announced his readiness to buy from Russia the second regiment of the S-400 air defense system, but there are no reports of a compromise so far. Interestingly, the director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia Dmitry Shugaev said back in August 2020 that the contract for the second batch of S-400 had already been signed and the question was only in its “financial performance”. Apparently, he was referring to the disputes over the localization of production in Turkey.
