At the moment, Russia is not negotiating sale of the S-300 anti-aircraft system to Syria. As Vladimir Putin's aide on military and technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin told Izvestia, there has been no talks about deliveries of this type of weapons yet.
"So far, there has been no discussions about deliveries of modern systems," Kozhin said, adding that the Syrian armed forces have "all they need."
Reports on the possible supply of S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria appeared after the April attacks on various sites in the territory of the country by the United States, France and Britain forces.
It is known that the Syrian army now has anti-aircraft defense complexes of the Soviet period and modern Russian Pantsir anti-aircraft missile systems.
EADaily previously reported that Israel struck a missile strike at the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile system in Syria. In addition, the press service of the IDF said that the country's military aircraft, during the attack on the positions of the Iranian forces in Syria, fired at the Buk-M1-2, S-200 and S-75 air defense complexes.
