Russia offers Iran advanced S-400 air defense weapons

Moscow invites Tehran to bid for S-400 aid defense systems, Russia media reported on Sunday, June 30. Neither the US nor Israel figures in those reports, or last week’s deployment of US F-22 stealth jets to Qatar, amid a tense US-Iran standoff. The Russian Federal Service of Military-Technical Cooperation military cooperation service was quoted as announcing: “We are open for discussions on delivering S-400 Triumph air defense systems, including to Iran… We have not received an official request from our partners on this matter yet.”

The advanced S-400 can intercept cruise missiles as well as warplanes. It is now on offer to Iran although Moscow refused to supply them to the Islamic Republic last month. DEBKAfile notes: This turnabout has come shortly after Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin met in Osaka on the sidelines of the G20 summit and indicates that they made no progress towards bridging their differences on the Iranian and Syria issues. The offer also signified the failure of the American, Russian and Israeli national security advisers, John Bolton, Nikolai Patrushev and Meir Ben-Shabbat, to reach a consensus on these issues when they met in Jerusalem five days ago.

On that occasion Patrushev stated that “Moscow has an interest in safeguarding Israel’s security.”

Our military sources note that Tehran may find an opportunity to accept Moscow’s proposition in the course of the 5th International Military-Technical Forum taking place at the National Park in the Russian capital, with the participation of 120 nations and armies. If this transaction does indeed go through, Iran will be the second Middle East nation to purchase the Russian S-400 weapons system, after Turkey, which expects delivery before the end of this year. In Osaka, our military sources add, President Trump told Turkish President Reccep Erdogan that Washington has withdrawn the threat of sanctions on his government for purchasing S-400s from Russia, although it is the first NATO member to buy arms from Moscow.

    Russia has lots, lots more to fear from Iran than the U.S. does!

      This is a good Move by the Russians, have Iran Spend Money on what they Can’t Defend, and let Russia make Money before Iran Shiia Regime Rule Ends!

      • Jul 2, 2019 @ 0:44 at 0:44

        I agree. By Russia announcing this it is Russia telling Israel and the US to hurry up and take out their missiles and nuke reactors. Why else would they announce it and not keep it secret?

    • Jul 1, 2019 @ 5:35 at 5:35

      the stealth fighters american deployed can already defeat their system’s…that’s why you don’t hear nothing from u.s. concerning this possible deal… Trump don’t trust putin and vice versa..neither are foolish. Israel has been silent also…russia needs the money and the stuff won’t work…

      Iran doesn’t start wars. The european squatter colony has monopolized that role in the region.

      Neither Russia nor any other country has o fear Iran.

      It’s a propaganda by the u.s. and Israel top attack another country. They have been faking evidences and news to attack other countries for decades

    As always, the Russian antiaircraft will fail before the stealth planes, F-22 and the F-35 … Russian clowns only sell dreams …

      It’s hard to believe up until about 1970 Iran’s women dressed as western women,wearing bikinis to the beach and skirts and dresses..
      Then a bunch of old bearded sick perverts took over and destroyed freedom..

        US were solidly defeated in Iraq and Afghanistan. Saudi Arabia killed and dismembered an American journalist with total disregard and disrespect for the US. All 9/11 terrorists were Saudis.

        People like you Ginger are seriously messed-up and confused.

    Good Business decision to milk Iran and Turkey for expensive weapons that may or may not work as claimed. Shooting down an American or Israeli manned plane could result in the eradication of all the S400’s sold to these countries, that could better use the money to feed their people.

    • Jul 1, 2019 @ 1:35 at 1:35

        I thought you guys greened up a desert — and I don’t mean by diverting all the Goyim’s rivers over to your golf courses and swimming pools.

    • Jul 1, 2019 @ 3:49 at 3:49

      …and what’s more – attempts to re-supply once these weapons are destroyed will be stopped. Blown up on the tarmac…which is what Israel has been doing.

      Even IF the S-400 could provide air security. There are other ways to take them out and re-supply will be interdicted.

      Its best for Iran to negotiate, it cannot fight and win..this time.

      • Jul 1, 2019 @ 4:56 at 4:56

        I think one way to take out Russia’s S-400 would be fairly simple if say Israel fired 24 missiles at the same time at Syria’s 4
        S-400’s then have Israel fire another round of missiles at all of them again would destroy them,,it wouldn’t give Syria time to reload the S-400’s….There’s still too little we know about the S-400’s,,how fast can they be reloaded..

    Russia attempting to get what it can before the jig is up. Trump tells Putin time is up for Iran and it’s current leadership, get what you can and drain the Iranian treasury to speed the impending collapse… No way Russia can get the system delivered in time, and up and running in time. Turkey will not receive their system for at least another six months…

    • Jul 1, 2019 @ 17:44 at 17:44

      Putin, Send the NORWINDS Cargo Jet, plus some mercenaries, take the Iranian gold reserves like you did Venezuela, it’s a sound business model.

      The S-400s will be tested and blown away, will hurt their export markets….but the Gold Rules

    • Jul 2, 2019 @ 11:55 at 11:55

      russia delivered the s-300 to syria in under a week last october, because it was a surplus system from upgrading a russian antiaircraft unit. more importantly, instead of waiting to train syrian crews, the russians sent their own troops to operate it. things can move quickly when there’s a lot of money on the line.

  • Jul 1, 2019 @ 1:01 at 1:01

    Actually, russian and chinese sks rifles, ak47&74, makarov pistols, etc, etc, have been sold on the american surplus market for as long as I can remember. Free trade overlooks minor political dramas.

      It isn’t an expression of chauvinism. If this tension escalates into an all-out-war, Iran’s obliteration is a foregone conclusion

      • Jul 1, 2019 @ 3:35 at 3:35

        “Those that curse Israel are cursed by God.” That promise made to the elders thousands of years ago long before Persia ordered the S400.

        Iran will certainly be obliterated on Twitter. And the antisemitic squatters who post to this Mossad portal will say really mean things about Islam.

        But Uncle Sam can’t touch Iran, and they know it.

        That’s WHY they’re barking.

        • Jul 5, 2019 @ 4:01 at 4:01

          you are high as a kite. US would wipe up Iran if it came to that, i get your neo-liberal talking points about warmongering etc etc – without going into all the reasons why and why not just be real with yourself for a second – US weapons would devastate that country in days. If you are that in denial watch some cover cabal on youtube and wake the fck up. no one will listen to any of your points when you are being so ignorant on the facts

  • Jul 1, 2019 @ 1:15 at 1:15

    Soon, the Iranian Shiia Regime is going the way of the USSR Old Politburo Guard of the1980-90s as Series of Successors are Old Feeble Men Thinking They Can Maintain Power, but have created Divisions with Missions to Change Iran.

  • Jul 1, 2019 @ 1:49 at 1:49

    Again, hard to say if this is a genuine offer or what. And, if Turkey supports the Tripoli Libyans, and Russians support the Benghazi ones, gets even crazier, since Turkey is purchasing the S-400s, even though both nations have staked out different positions on many foreign issues. Trying to make my head stop spinning. Coffee would help. Espresso is better.

    • Jul 1, 2019 @ 4:55 at 4:55

      The arms market is a fool’s market. If someone is selling you arms, . . . they are sub-standard to what the country has that is doing the selling. Russia is selling 400’s only because they: 1) can use the cash, 2) have a fool for a buyer, and 3) have bigger and better toys back home than they are selling. AND when Iran attempts to use them, . . . and gets busted to the core, . . . Russia can just say they didn’t follow proper Russian procedures . . .

  • Jul 1, 2019 @ 3:03 at 3:03

    Good enough to have successfully game-changed the Israelis over an attack on Iran is good enough indeed
    The purpose built ‘Stealth Killer’, the advanced s400 was designed as high cull hunter of the F22, B2 and F35. Deployment of s300/likely intermixed s400 capabilities closed the ‘Window for Iran’ so often flogged in 2011 by Ehud Barak as Obama stuffed the in-motion triggering attack on Iran ordered by Netanyahu at that time and subsequently published and exposed

    • Jul 1, 2019 @ 3:27 at 3:27

      Like that sleight of hand “the S400 was designed as a hunter of F22, B2 and F35.” News flash. The fighter jets you call fodder for an untested weapon system will “see” the radar signature of the S400 and destroy them before they even know what hit them. The 5th gen US fighter jets are backed by a spiders web phased array of radar installations surrounding Iran, as well as satellites which will relay to them the exact locations of the missiles. They don’t have a chance!

      After installing S300s and 400s in Syria in 2016, Russia wouldn’t dare even turn on their radars, lest the Israelis lock on and destroy them, a huge humiliation Putin couldn’t afford to undergo.

      • Jul 1, 2019 @ 3:57 at 3:57

        I agree, Russia is ‘saving’ the S-400 and 500 for itself. If it lets the scum use it, giving up its secrets, counter measures will be in place by the end of the day. Meaning that Russia’s own security will be weakened.

  • Jul 1, 2019 @ 5:39 at 5:39

    Lol then it’s true, the US cyber attack completely fried their current S-300/domestic air defense. Better hurry, your pants are down. Russia being so nice and friendly probably just set the foundation stone on Fort Trump, lol.

    Smart play. Turkey a “NATO ally” bought some as well. I am sure they will share lower grade system for the West to reverse engineer and defeat.

  • Jul 2, 2019 @ 12:04 at 12:04

    the delivery will be expedited, dramatically, because they want to get paid before the “big bang” in tehran. just like last year’s s-300 delivery to iranian forces in syria.

  • Jul 3, 2019 @ 2:57 at 2:57

    Russia Decided to Deliver S-400 Missile System to Iran The relationship between Iran and America stand on the worst stage because both of countries relationship is not good between them America continuously wants to Iran that not increase the source to generate Uranium for develop Nuclear weapons, But the Iran response is not in America favour, on the other side Russia also give support to Iran that disagree those instruction that America forced to Iran work for it
