    The Kremlin is not commenting on Ankara claiming that Russia and Turkey had signed a document on supplies of S-400 systems to Turkey, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey and Russia had signed a document on supplies of S-400 missile systems.

    “We are not commenting [on it],” Peskov said

    The S-400 Triumph is Russia's next-generation mobile surface-to-air missile system carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at a short-to-extremely-long range. It integrates a multifunctional radar, autonomous detection and targeting systems, anti-aircraft missile systems, launchers, and a command and control center.

    On July 18, the head of Russia's Rostec state corporation Sergei Chemezov said technical issues of the contract for the supply of the S-400 systems to Turkey had been resolved, with only administrative ones remaining.

    As of now, Russia has concluded a contract for the delivery of the S-400 systems with China alone. Negotiations are also being conducted with India.
