Russia starts delivery of 2nd S-400 regiment set to China
Russia has launched an operation to deliver the 2nd regiment set of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems to China by sea, a source in military and diplomatic circles said.
"A transport vessel with the first batch of hardware from the second S-400 regiment set for China has taken to the sea from the port of Ust-Luga on the Baltic coast," TASS cited the source as saying.
It was note that the deliveries of the systems have started several months ahead of the term stipulated in the contract.
The delivery of the entire S-400 regiment set to China envisages "involving no less than three vessels" that will take to the sea one by one "within short time intervals," the source added.
