BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 A.M.) – Russia not currently negotiating the supply of S-300 systems with Syria, the top aide to the Russian president, Vladimi Kozhin told Izvestiya on Thursday.
As previously reported, a possible return to the discussion of the Syrian S-300 deliveries to the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces was announced after the United States, Britain and France attacked the Syrian government on April 14.
Later, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with RIA Novosti that after the Moscow coalition’s blow, there is “no moral obligation” to not supply the Syrian S-300.
“So far, no speeches are being made about any deliveries of modern new systems (air defense – Izvestia),” the newspaper Kozhin said.
He also noted that the Syrian armed forces have “all they need”.
