Russia ‘ready to deliver S-400 to Iran,’ no request made yet

Press TV – June 28, 2019

Russian S-400, a successor to the S-300.

Russia says it is ready to deliver advanced S-400 air defense missile systems to Iran but says it has not yet received any official request from the Islamic Republic for such a sale.

“We are open for discussions on delivering S-400 Triumph air defense systems, including to Iran. Especially given that this equipment is not subject to restrictions outlined in UN Security Council’s resolution issued on June 20, 2015,” a representative of the press service of the Russian Federal Service of Military-Technical Cooperation told Sputnik on Friday.

The official, whose name was not mentioned in the report, was referring to the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 (2015), which was adopted four years ago to endorse a nuclear deal between Iran and six other countries at the time, including Russia.

Iran has already received the earlier version of the missile defense system, the S-300, whose procurement had been withheld until the adoption of Resolution 2231 even though Russia had undertaken to deliver the systems to Iran under an 800-million-dollar deal reached in 2007.

The resolution terminated all past Security Council sanctions on Tehran, including those that prohibited the supply of arms.

In a report published on May 30, Bloomberg claimed Russia had rejected Iran’s request to buy S-400 missile defense systems, “concerned that the sale would stoke more tension” in the Middle East.

But a Russian deputy prime minister rejected the Bloomberg report back in early June.

The Russian official who spoke on Friday also stressed that Russia had “not received an official request from our partners on this matter yet.”

The newer remarks come amid heightened US hostility toward Iran. US President Donald Trump has withdrawn America from the deal with Iran, has imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic, and has several times threatened to attack the country.

Despite the US’s withdrawal, the other signatories to the deal have remained in it, referencing international law, including Resolution 2231, for cooperation with Tehran.

The S-400 is an advanced air and missile defense system intended to engage incoming hostiles at ranges of up to 400 kilometers.

  1. Old New, Old News: Lets Get Serious, Lets Talk S-700 and S-1500!

    Watch this video, yeah, yeah I know, but still its a very interesting video, especially since everything up to S-500 is legit! Have a watch,
    The S-500, is only still the beginning

    Now we already know that the S-500 is fully operational. It has been installed around Moscow. This means the S-600 and S-700 are in full development.

    But statements like, “Checking all first strike capabilities of the USA”, are some serious words. This can only happen if ICBMs are shot down as they are launched. There is a lot of chatter about the Avangard system, supposedly it goes faster than Mach 20. That means Moscow to Washington DC in less than 20 minutes. Now if Russians can put that in submarine, we are talking now having the capability to shoot down every single ICBM the US launches on their own territory. From the moment the ICMB is launched and detected all in less then 2-3 minutes, it is shot down on the same patch of dirt that launched it! 20 Mach, about 25,000 km/h, is one hell of an advantage.

    Thus an S-1500 system, would mean, total defense of anything you can throw at it. It means whatever you launch, whether ICBMS, drones, jet fighters, missiles from any where around the Earth, including from subs, will be dealt within minutes or less.

    And I have to say this…who will be Russia’s greatest buyers? China, Iran, Turkey and etc.

    Anyone out there interested in buying some never used, old, decrepit, slow Patriot Missile Systems? They are proven weapons tech. against flea-ridden Yemeni camels! They are going cheap. Just call the Sales Office of the Whitehouse, Washington D.C. They are desperate to sell them, just ask Turkey! Discounts apply if you buy in bulk!

  2. Plutonymus Maximus Ready to Deliver Genius Bombs to Iran

    Plutonymus Maximus, the emerging militia intent on socking it to the US empire of greed, vanity and conceit, has informed Tehran that it is ready to supply its Genius Bombs to Iran to help them defeat the Moronican terrorists who are huffing and puffing and threatening to blow their country to hell.

    The Plutonymus Maximus “Genius Bomb” is equipped with psychopath detectors and bullshit detectors allowing the bomb to zoom in on bullshitting psychopaths within glow-ballistic terror organizations while leaving the innocent people nearly untouched unless they happen to be within 10 feet of the targeted terrorists. These Genius Bombs have the ability to split into many smaller bombs eliminating collateral damage.

    Plutonymus Maximus has reported that it is more than ready to start the mass production of Genius Bombs in order to effect regime change in Hel Aviv, Warshington, London, Paris, Berlin, Canberra and Ottawa. They are continuously adding new targets to their previously disclosed list of choice targets.

    Software specialists at Plutonymus Maximus have perfected their algorithms in such a way that each target selected by the ZIOG (Zionist Ogre) gets re-assigned to a more appropriate and deserving target…{{{ smiles }}}

    The fact that most of the hardware has already been put in place by the empire itself, has allowed Plutonymus Maximus to keep the costs at a bare minimum… {{{ BIG smiles }}}
