During the 19th India-Russia Annual Bilateral Summit that was held in New Delhi on October 5th, last year, India has inked on a contract that worth a whopping of USD 5.43-billion deal with Russia for purchasing the five most advanced S-400 systems for the long term security needs.
On this Russian Prime Minister, Yuri Borisov has given the latest update which is that sophisticated S-400 air defense missile systems will be delivered to India strictly complying with the schedule that they did.
Russian Prime Minister said to the state-owned broadcaster as, “The advance payment has been received and everything will be delivered in strict accordance with the schedule, within about 18-19 months”
Earlier this month, our External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar was in Moscow to meet the Russian higher cadre for discussing the ways to broaden the bilateral co-operation. Amid the tensions between India and Pakistan, having such highly advanced S-400 systems under our control will not only give us courage but lead us to a firm belief in tackling any tough situation that confronts us.
