Russian S-400 Defense Systems Arrive in Turkey Despite US Warning

Turkey’s Defense Ministry speaks the primary shipment of a Russian missile defense system has reached in Turkey, a development that could move the nation closer to U.S. sanctions.

The ministry said the first transport of the S-400 air defense systems reached on Friday at an air base near the capital, Ankara.
