S-400 deliveries to Turkey continue amid US sanctions reports

The Turkish Defense Ministry stated on Sunday it is continuing to receive S-400 deliveries from Russia, noting the sixth batch of components for the missile defense system arrived.

"The deliveries of S-400 air defense systems continue. To that end, the sixth plane has landed at Murted Air Base," the ministry said in a statement.

The latest shipment comes after Bloomberg reported the United States decided to impose sanctions against Ankara after Turkey refused to cancel the deal with Russia despite Washington's threats. The embargo is set to be announced within the next few days.
